Do you consider yourself a serious sneaker collector? Do you take pride in hunting through dusty attics, closets, and the like for ancient footwear? If you’re that sort of person (We’re assuming you are if you found your way to this site) then Complex has some advice for you. The team over there has put together their “10 Sneakers Every Serious Collector Should Own”. Mind you this isn’t specific models for the most part, but rather more general categories like “a pair of shoes without laces”, “a pair of adidas with someone’s face on it”, etc. Continue reading for a couple samples and then go to Complex to see the rest.

A pair of adidas with someone’s face on the tongue....!?!?!..Are you fucking kidding me..!?!?!?

KAREEM ABDUL  JABBAR YOU MODDASOCCAZ....!!!

I have a DEADSTOCK Pair of ADIDAS SUPERSTARS made in FRANCE..with the thin tounge,the suede innersole and grey/white suede stripes....

I just trew away like almost 30 pairs of shelltoes in all the colors from the late 80´s early 90´s..all yellowed up.

I also have a pair with all white snakeleather stripes like RUN wears in RUNS HOUSE video...

I have a load of original suede pumas in all the colors you could buy in london or paris back then.

does that make me something like a collector or a sneakerhead?...No..it doesnt at all.

and get your facts right about some one´s face on a adidas shoe....BEFORE you make a clown out of your self.....

Article writer Brendan Dunne isn't 'there' yet. Albeit respect his opinion, ...

A real-deal collector must have:

adidas "SUPERSTAR" - Made in France

adidas "PROMODEL" - Made in France

adidas "Marathon" - Made in Western Germany

adidas "STAN SMITH" - Made in France

adidas "TOP TEN" - Made in France

adidas "BECKENBAUER" - Made in Western Germany

New Balance 990 - Made in USA

New Balance 1500 - Made in USA and Made in England

Diadora - Made in Italy

Nike - Made in Japan

Asics Tiger TBF707 - Made in Japan

Asics Tiger TBF712 - Made in Japan

Onitsuka Tiger "Chuck Taylor" - Made in Japan

Superga - Made in Italy

Pony - Made in USA

K-Swiss - Made in Czechoslovakia

Tretorn - Made in USA

The advent of Nike, JBs, Reeboks, even adidas, etc - all of which are now made in Asia particularly China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan, Philippines, etc - was a self-inflicted wound for the sake of cheap labor.

As a collector myself, I look up to European-made or American-made sneakers - the country of origin. Japan is an exception among Asian countries because of its long tradition of superior craftsmanship.

Dumbest fucking article Complex has ever made. Who are they to tell me what I need to have? FOH I buy what I want

So if someone collects only Adidas or whatever why would they have a pair of Nike Air Jays... That doesn't make them a serious sneakerhead makes them more of a hypebeast.

Who determines what a "serious" sneakerhead should buy? If I don't have these kicks will the "serious sneakerhead police" come get me? GTFO!

Don't be surprised if Complex comes out with a "Top 10 Sneakers all Re-Sellers should sell" list too.

Hypebeasts wear what everyone else has. Real sneaker heads buy and own what they like.

This is fucking dumb a sneaker head buys what they like not influenced by stupid hype and a dumb list.

@Sneeky I notice that you and the author of the Complex piece use collector, as opposed to "sneakerhead". That's what's up.
