I have been collecting shoes since 1985. As a kid I would do jobs in the neighborhood to earn money for kicks. When the Air Max came out I had to have it and once they were dirty, I cut them apart to learn how they worked. My original Jordan 1’s suffered the same fate. I wore those with two pairs of socks so I could fit a 6.5 and get AJ’s, not the sky jordans that the rest of my friends had to wear in the kids size.
