When you think of vintage sneaker collectors, you’re pretty much always going to picture a male. It’s true, about 99% of the world’s community of vintage sneaker collectors are guys. And that’s what makes this amazing collection even more special and unique. On display now at the campus of Wallace State Community College in Alabama is the collection of the late Charlotte Cummings, who co-owned an athletic footwear store throughout the 1980s and ’90s with her husband Robin. Looking like a genius now, Charlotte began setting aside Air Jordans and other sneakers for safe-keeping beginning in the mid-80s, amassing the collection seen today in the museum environment. Unfortunately, Charlotte has since passed away, but Robin has kept her love for sneakers alive with the exhibition, even adding more sneakers to here original collection within the last two years. Those in the Hanceville, Alabama area can view the awesome collection until March 15th, 2016. You can also see more of the collection on Robin’s Instagram page.

Very nice.  This was what collecting sneakers was always about.  If you take away the money, the hype, the game- there would still be people appreciating sneakers for what they are.

Smart businessperson. She obviously appreciated the art of sneaker design and recognized MJ's potential.

She owned a small sports store, and started collecting when his very first sneaker came out... She was a visionary, her husband has an IG page showing alot of her collection (she's passed away)

Pay respect! Jordan should make a shoes exclusively for her or at least make a custom eleven or 1 with her initials on it!
