    I never understand why someone needs that many sneakers. I wear one pair of chucks, I have a pair of athletic shoes, a pair of boat shoes, and then it's dressier stuff.

    I dunno, I like a variety, plus as my sneakers get really worn I usually toss em or give em away so there has to be a restocking a few times a year.... I hear ya though I dont really have that many sneakers, there are the fanatics with 25-200 pairs now that is going over board. I think 10 is a good cut off point.

    i think the sneakers is like anything else, you start off thinking you only need one or two pairs, but then you keep finding something that is so cool and funky and the next level style. you got to get it.

    there's this martin margiela suede/canvas sneaker in white and beige with a criss cross net-like lacing in front that is so hot. if i were to get any new sneaker that would be it.

    but alas, it is $595. and even at 30% off it still is 400+ for a pair of rubber sole sneakers. too much

    Some people wear sneakers a fair amount and want a variety. As someone who wears a lot of casual outfits, i have a bunch of sneakers, all with different looks. I really really want to consolidate all my sneakers and get just 3 really nice ones instead of a bunch of mediocre ones like now.

    I agree with chrono. I have a lot of different sneakers but only really wear a few of them, white chucks as beaters and my y's cause they look amazing with everything. I thought CPs looked alright but after seeing a few of them worn in and beat up I fell in love and now I think I need to get a pair.

    There is no where to buy stuff where I live...

    Picked up a purple AA cardigan because the taper on the arms is intense (extra small,) and a J. Lindeberg white polo, could be a little smaller (it's dece, on sale for like $40 so whatever, no loss if I only use it as a layer.)

    some pringle socks apc ns (no photo as everyone on here knows exactly what they look like!) This Garbstore denim bomber jacket in a clearance sale. I'm now slightly unsure about this as a) i normally wear jeans and am not convinced I won't look like a twat with both denim trousers and top b) I'm tempted to say it's a smidgen too big [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    For what it's worth, I really don't like that bomber. I also think it'll look weird with jeans.

    Picked up a pair of raw indigo slim leg denim from some unknown Japanese brand in a back alley of Shibuya (brand name: Upstart ) fit was spot on and they were marked down and the whole store was up to 2000Â¥ off so they were only like 8000Â¥.

    and a slimfit steel grey trench coat from Buona Giornata
