One thing that makes us all sneakerholics, is the way in which we get our hands on some of the sneakers in our collections. For most of us, every shoe has a story on how it became a part of our sneaker collection.
Sometimes it’s as simple as heading to the local spot and picking them up, but other times it’s a friend of a friend, or a newly made connection that helps us land some of our favorite kicks. On top of the story on how those kicks became a part of your collection, the reason why they are important to you specifically, is usually different than the reason the same shoes are important to the next sneaker enthusiast.
True, most of us may have been Michael Jordan fans, but there are those that weren’t. For that reason, each and every one of us has a unique sneaker collection. We all have our own stories.
A perfect example of this is Elliot Curtis’ Reebok Omni Pump. At first glance, it appears like a simple Red and White colorway. Reading what Elliot has to say about their story, makes you realize that these are 1 of only 2 created for Jameer Nelson of the Orlando Magic.
In order to make the Sneakerpedia Wiki the best it can be, the same way we all share our own style of pictures and there is a place to share your ‘Personal Sneaker Story’ just below the Sneaker History on each Sneakerpedia page. Be sure to share your story if you have one!
