Collecting Jordans is pretty popular. I'd never thought of it until a good friend was telling me about his Jordan collection. He has every single pair & has stood in lines for an entire day & night to get a pair.

To answer the OP's question,

I don't personally collect Jordans, but my favorites are the 6's, mostly because when I was a kid, I wanted a pair so bad & my parents refused to buy them for me.
I worked my butt off all summer mowing lawns & saved up money for a pair of the 7's. They lasted all of three months until the suede started scuffing bad enough to wear a hole in the toe. Never again have I paid a ton of money for shoes, other than dress shoes. Wise parents I have!

I guess you could go that route. (If your into that). I have a closet full of all MY shoes. Actually not a closet anymore. I got bumped out of the room I was in (baby boy) and had to build a shelving/storage unit in the stairwell. Pics are dated but it looks something like this:

I used to collect them, but only collected and then just sold them off when they became deadstock.

Great choice on the VI's. . .And I'm sorry you missed out and ended up with VII's, haha. Too bad you didn't keep them. . .even scuffed up they would be worth plenty of coin right now. 👍👍.

"Became Deadstock." What exactly does that mean?

Like when you aren't able to get them anymore, they release then sell out.

I think it's like car. An all original (numbers matching) car. So, shoes that come with the box, tissue, shoes forms, any cards or accessories. DS used to mean brand new but now I've seen people calling shoes worn once or twice Deadstock.

Yeah pretty much. I never wore mine, not my style. I knew a lot of people in high school that couldn't afford them at 165-175, so I would just cut them deals when it came time for me to sell. Not good business as far as me not making money but I prefered doing that than being a ****ing hypebeast and selling them for 100-150 more dollars than what I bought them for.

As long as your shoe hobby is not bothering anybody else and you still live within your means (instead of buying shoes at the deficit of your mortgage/rent), then I don't see any harm. Pokemon, GI Joe, Air Jordans, Comic Books, ... I'm not sure how these collections register on a psychological level. Some will say it's quite normal and others will say that stockpiling shoes that aren't worn (or intended for practical use) by the owner is a form of hoarding and therefore a disorder.

Good luck for your exchange and trading; like baseball cards It seems.

Haha. Far from hoarding. Just something to do. I'd say its triggered by childhood wants. . .or things you couldn't get/afford/have and now you can. Not much different from the people on here spending countless hours/$$ obsessing over their Jeeps. ; ) This on the other hand has actually come in handy on a couple occasions when I was without work (construction slows to a halt in the Winter in Chicago) and It has helped me pay the rent/mortgage. Anyway, I didn't want this thread to be all philosophical concerning the rhymes and reasons of collecting shoes. I just want to see if there's any Jordan collectors on the forum. Soooooo let's try this again and LET'S SEE WHAT YOU GOT!!

My grandparents are very wealthy and would buy my aunt two pair of Jordans every year before school started. She would wear one pair and keep one new in the box to collect. To be honest she was probably that way with most toys as well. I'm sure she has almost every toy NIB from the early 80's-mid 90's.

I thought it was stupid then and I think it's stupid now.
