Don't have much skate shoes, I always give them away after skating in them.

I almost only get shoes that I would want to skate, I throw them away when their done and I sell/give away when thet don't fit right...

I currently own about around 30-40 pairs

It started off so rational and matter of fact.

Then came the admission.

I almost feel like a shoe virgin!

Does anyone not get shoe whore guilt? Or is it way past that? In it to win it.

I guess twenty or thirty pairs, only one pair are skate shoes. Rest are Nikes, Reeboks, Adidas etc.

I'm always circulating a few different pair, right now its the g6s, ADVs, cons CTAS... I have around 20-30 old pair (mostly Emerica) that could still be skated, but I store them like a hoarder for memories. Some gems include: brand new Reynolds 1s in Grey/Red, new R2s in Black/white/black, and the purple haze R3's. Also still have some new Ellington supras shoe in red leather (so puffy)

So, the answer is clearly that there is no such thing as having too many shoes because someone will always have more than you.

i have a shit load.  need to go on a buying freeze.  some i have never even worn and feel like i should sell them, but it's almost more trouble than it's worth


i'm curious at what point do you guys throw away shoes?  i don't really skate much street / do flip tricks so my shoes hardly ever wear out because of ollie holes.  but when they start getting more floppy and less supportive i don't want to skate them, but then i usually keep them to just wear around

life is hard

Sometimes I have to get rid of a shoe. If I have it too long and know I can't skate it.

These things had to be binned.



These too


Both pairs never broke in.

Definitely caused me some mental anguish.
