Ah, to be a sneakerhead with disposable income. Nate Robinson certainly fits that bill, and after showing us his eye-catching basketball sneaker rotation and his stash of Air Jordans last week, he’s hit us with another crop of noticeable pick-ups. Air Jordan V ‘T23’, the 2006 DMP, Levi’s x Air Jordan 1 – a veritable list of must-have Air Jordans that most of the public can only dream to have. Of the ten pairs he’s laid out for us to see, which do you have in your own collection? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll keep you updated on Nate Robinson’s current sneaker-buying frenzy.

Nate is from Seattle and I've been a fan since he was in HS. And he was rocking J's back then at Ranier Beach HS and at UW. Most athletes grow up wanting the Jordans we all want now as adults or todays generation. They aren't any different.. they just now have the money to get what they wanted then. I cop all the stuff I wanted as a kid cus I CAN now and I buy them for my son! 206 stand up! City of Reign.
I don't understand how he lacks passion for Mikes or isn't a "sneakerhead" because he has bread. Honestly, it sound like cats hate on other cats who got money to pay whatever for kicks. That shit is beyond wack. And it's beyond wack to spend your last dime on some shoes. But I can't hate on some one that is papered up with an ill shoe collection, whether they are a celebrity, ball player, or a regular dude with a good job. Truthfully, all this "sneakerhead" talk is kind of weak, I rock Mikes because that's what I choose to do, not because the shit is super hot right now. I really could care less about the next man's shoe game, that shit is kind of gay...
how u a "sneakerhead" and dont have at least one of these already??? FOH hes a hypebeast just like 90% of these basketball and football players....rappers too smh
By these shoes I mean OG Js. Not these more recent releases pictured. My point is he's probably an original fan of JB from when they started out. However no one knows for sure, so don't hate
I'm sure nate could give a F!*#$@ if ya'll think he's a sneakerhead or not. Thats a title anyone of you fools would switch out with millionaire if you could. Come on haters......... Just stop. However, also consider he's a baller and bball player. Back when these dope ass shoes were releasin in the 90s, he like myself and anyone else who was old enough to love and play the game at that time was aware of these and probably wanted em to play in. Back then you wanted em to play in b/c Jordan was THE PREMIER player who had the "best" shoes. Him and Penny. You didn't get your desire to buy the shoes from seeing some rapper wear em, and there weren't hundreds of photos of these celebrities and their shoes. People need to reserve their judgement on someone's originality when they have no idea what his motivation was to get these shoes.
In my opinion he isn't a Sneakerhead because if you have alot of money you can just buy them. A Sneakerhead is someone who has a passion and does whatever it takes to get them, even if they have to travel for them and spend their last dime..... He still don't got the Jordan 7 bin 23's or hares tho.
All of those are fire, and I have the Miros which I love a lot because of how unique they are. I loon forward to picking up the grapes as well next may
Nice. But it doesn't impress me because these shoes aren't coveted by him. These were easilt attainable by Nate so it low key pisses me off lol
@overlydedicated18 This is a dumb ass comment. The exact reason why I say I'm not a "sneakerhead" to stay away from comparisons from you dumb niggas. Who the hell would spend their last dime on a pair of shoes? Get your priorities straight. I'll stay just being a dude that likes shoes. Never have been and never will be a "sneakerhead". That shit is lame.
@newsouth912 exactly!..this guy can literally pay watever rape he paid for these at any given time and then come out like this and front like hes been a sneakerhead wit heat.
@Gusto Na, its just a passion. Dumb ass niggas like you always knock other people and what they do while you watch a young fly nigga like myself walk off wit yo main bitch.... Wit tha shoes i just spent my last dime on. Don't worry bout me, worry bout yo bitch
@overlydedicated18 And what you think you're doing? Knockin this man because he has money and you broke ass doesn't. I bet he doesn't give a fuck if you think he's a "sneakerhead". That nigga is looking at you like the lame you are.
Lame ass nigga please. My bitches are sophisticated. They would never walk off with a dumb ass nigga with your mentality. Get money
@joeblo @CC221 you're right he did bust his ass. But these are recent pick ups, which means he didn't really care too much about them when they came out. He just decided oh I'll grab some sought after Jordan's and floss on other ppl
