Post we’d wear our white uniforms for a fe
It’s no secret that the sneaker resale market has blown up. Today, it’s Adidas Stan Smith Mujer valued at $1 billion and analysts expect that number to continue rising in the coming years. It also seems that more and more people are falling in love with shoes and sneaker culture. These days, Complex, Nice Kicks, HYPEBEAST and WearTesters among others will show you a celebrity’s entire sneaker collection or they’ll take you along as they go shopping for new pairs. And in the social-media era, it’s easier than ever for people to share pictures and videos of their entire collection or their most recent purchase.Professional athletes have some distinct advantages when it comes to getting their hands on shoes. HoopsHype talked to nine current or former NBA players with impressive sneaker collections to discuss their love of kicks, what’s in their closet and much more. Drew Ruiz contributed to this article.WHEN DID YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Femme SHOES AND START COLLECTING THEM?Rudy Gay, San Antonio Spurs: I started collecting in my junior year of high school. It was one of those things where when I was younger, I really wanted shoes but I couldn’t get them. When I was a junior in high school, I got a job and the first thing I bought was a pair of all white Air Force 1s. I was trying really hard to keep Nike Air Max Classic BW Womens them clean, but it’s basically impossible to keep them fresh, as we all know. I ended up getting a few pairs of those, and then I Adidas ZX Flux Womens started buying some new stuff that was coming out. From there, I just kept collecting.

Thaddeus Young, Indiana Pacers: In high school, I started to collect. When I got into ninth grade, I had a real passion for shoes and they started to accumulate. Obviously, I couldn’t afford every pair of shoes that I wanted, but when I did get the money, I’d go buy Js or Nikes and I’d try to keep them for a long time. I actually still have a decent amount of pairs from when I was in high school. That’s when it all started. I just love collecting and the chase of trying to get your hands on a certain pair you’ve wanted for a long time.Mike Bibby, 14-year NBA veteran: I’ve always loved shoes, but I didn’t start collecting them until I was in the NBA. Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of money to be able to get different pairs of shoes. I only had Adidas ZX 750 Mujer one pair here and there; I wasn’t able to actually start collecting shoes until Nike Air Presto Donne I got into the NBA. I’ve always loved them, though. So to be one of the first six athletes to start the Jordan Brand, it’s just an amazing feeling. I know a lot of kids want Jordans and the brand is really popular, so it’s special. The story behind me joining Jordan Brand is pretty simple. David Falk is my agent and he also represented Michael Jordan. He asked me, “Would you want to wear Jordans?”

When I was little, I Adidas Superstar Mujer used to play on a team called AIM HIGH. I used to live in the Los Angeles/Inglewood area but we would play in Orange County and Santa Clarita, so we used to pass the Slauson Swap Meet all the time. I would always stop there and try to get shoes. At that time, I was selling toys at the Orange County Swap Meet so I could make money to buy shoes. My mom bought the first five toys for me to sell and then I kept doing it. I was making my own money, so my mom didn’t have to keep buying me shoes. This was when I was 6 years old! Even when I was younger, I Nike Air Max Zero Femme always loved shoes and I wanted shoes to match our different uniforms. When we’d wear our white uniforms for a few nights in a row, I’d want a new pair of white shoes. When we’d wear our blue uniforms, I wanted a pair of blue shoes. It definitely started at a young age. I think one reason Nike Roshe Run Femme I became passionate about shoes is because there was a point when we couldn’t afford them. Once I could afford them and I was able to get what I wanted, my passion for them only grew.When he took that one, I was like, “Damn!” (laughs) I gave some shoes to The Game too;
