Collecting sneakers in our size has become a practice in futility. Our wages aren’t increasing, yet RRPs keep getting higher. We’re no longer strolling into our local on a Saturday afternoon to pick up the latest Air Jordans. We’re crying salty tears onto our phone screens as we take another L from an international retailer’s sneaker raffle. Our living spaces are getting full of old, crumbling shoes, and our loved ones are sending applications for us to be on the next episode of Hoarders or My Strange Addiction. It’s looking very bleak: we can’t keep living like this.
So, how do we change our footwear-enriched lives for the better, while still preserving our shoe-purchasing habits?
It’s time to collect baby shoes. They’re more viable than adult ones, in so many ways. In short: they’re cheaper, easier, save space, and still provide plenty of fun.
