Hey guys, here are some of my collections over the years. Many were sold, those kept are the ones that I truly loved! Still hunting my holy grails like tate, footpatrol 35th and all the bathing ape 1st series.

The loading is terrible.. I do have problems viewing the pics.

Anyway, I did some research on keeping shoes. Some say leave the shoes untouched, or some say store them in ziplock bags instead of other toxic plastic wraps. I couldn't afford of leaving them naked because of the humid climate I'm living in. The best I could do is store them away from sunlight and use dehumidifier. Well, so far the shoes are pretty okay (thankfully), consider some of them are more than 5yrs.

I will try to keep this post alive by posting more pics. Any comments are welcome.. cheers

Do you ever wear any of them?

If you have £5 and Chuck Norris has £5, Chuck Norris has more money than you.

Seriously dude, you gonna piss a lot of people off when they see you got shit like Undefeateds and Unions sitting in sealed bags, un-used.
They are nice, and worth keeping in good condition, but you should wear them once in a while.
This is the wrong place for you if you are a collector in the sense that they are just for display. We are collectors who wear the shoes we love!
Just saying.

Keeping shoes in plastic bags in displays cabinets is a little too weird for me, is it so they wipe clean easily when you've done shaking hot white coconuts from the vainy love tree over them Confused

No matter how pretty they look, they're shoes you should try wearing them once in a while, * awaits response of "I can't, they're not my size!" *

Thanks for the comments.

First of all, I do wear some of my shoes ranging from adidas to other brands. Besides the superstars, I tried wearing other models like micropacer and ZX series. But I would have to say, the superstar is still the most comfortable and lasting!

But if I were to choose, I would rather sell them than to wear, else it would break my heart. LOL

Okay here are my other collections. Old pictures I took very long ago.
By the way, I'm a UK8.5 - 9

Nice stuff but you need to wear em or you'll end up an old git with a lot unworn shoes in plastic bags. I'm sure some of us had the same idea in the beginning but eventually you come to the conlusion that it's pretty mental to keep unworn shoes in your cupboard.
