This is a shame call me a hater but I dont find this amazing at all... alot of people think this is impressive but to me its a real sign of addiction there is no way in the world a person should have this many shoes. I mean really guys think about it what do you gain from having so many shoes? Oh I know a word called "Swagger" or "Fresh2Death"? SMH what is this world comming to.

I'm never impressed with collections, because MOST of the shoes in a collection are simply the end result of spending money.  However, the guy gets props for speaking the truth on the foam game and his love for the 17s.

It's so bitter sweet to look at collections like this for me. To have a collection like this you have to pretty much live in the right area, have a TON of money or ELITE connects. I'm a disabled guy in Kansas so that pretty much blows me out of the water for having the money to have so many OGs and rare pairs and obviously this isn't the sneaker Mecca of the world and there are basically no connections. I was out of the shoe game and was working on my degree and playing baseball and a brain injury knocked me out of life 5.5 years ago and just saw a select few shoes I had in the 90s and just got a few for nostalgia. Now I'm hardcore into it and have a pretty nice collection but it's impossible for me to take it to that next level of having the super rare stuff. Still cool to see people who can and aren't just total dbags who know the right person. Also, I see he has a huge size gap in his collection which must help as finding a 13 in some rare pairs is about impossible.

@JustSoChill I'm almost 100% sure they are Andruw Jones trainer PEs for his first year with the Yankees. He always wears Jordan 4 PEs and they're in Yankee colors as well as his # was 18 in his first year. His logo is also that Brewers-like glove with his # in it. Google Andruw Jones Jordan 4 and you'll see.

@npt he said he COLLECT shoes. he even stated he buy shoes he doesn't even like because he collects them.

@hrbomber1113 Hey man, I feel your bitter sweet moment when you're looking at his collection. Well, let's be happy for him as only few people can have the time and resources to pull this collection off. Just enjoy the moment.

@ilovewordplay Yea I agree. He seems like a nice guy but I can't get over that comment "I don't let hype determine what I'm going to buy" then goes on to say he doesn't like the Lebron X Championship pack but has to have anything tied to a big moment in his career. Seemed contradictory

@seanlee3434 @hrbomber1113 Yeah man I totally agree. I think my biggest mistake is every time a shoe comes out that I like I buy it. Instead of thinking, "yeah I like those Foams and Kobes but I could get a pair of OG Jordans or some really rare and nice stuff for these regular releases". Also, because I'm disabled it's just a collection and never gets worn so I'm strict with sizes and have fallen into a trap of collecting packs and sets etc. It's not that I own any shoes I don't like, it's just that I should probably make a list of the top 100 shoes I want and work on that and anything that comes out on that list or close I get and let the regular stuff pass. Seems it's very difficult to be able to keep up with the massive retro drops, including Reebok killing my wallet, and get 5-10 pairs a month AND hit up eBay and get some OG versions. When I first got hurt it wasn't like I was told you're screwed. Everyone thought I'd be fine until the Mayo Clinic set it straight so I spent so much time collecting like I'm going to be wearing these soon and then switched halfway through to just a look at collection. Regardless, this is a really nice collection and I don't own a single LeBron. Not because he doesn't have awesome shoes but you just have to draw the line somewhere and if you're getting Jordans/Kobes/Pennys/Iversons/90s stuff/Pippen/Griffey etc you can't just collect them all.
