Janoski air max 1. Not so much for flip tricks because they tear super fast, but what an amazing shoe.  Never tried the 2ís but The Nike outlet(since closed) used to have them all the time for $20-$30.  And once a month all shoes were 20% off.  They actually closed the store just before the covid shutdown.  Not that they knew it was coming but it definitely closed in mid January despite being a very popular store.  It was an actual ďclearanceĒ store so seeing cars from illinois(6+ hours away) filling up the car with dozens of pairs of Jordanís was totally common.  Lots of seconds or display shoes but seriously good deals. 
Anyway, yeah, the janoski max 1.  Good shoe.

I had a lot of Lakai Griffins, Daly's / MJs, and Rileys. Kinda got a little OCD and really liked that sole and they treated me well. Had easily 10 pairs of the MJs and Rileys each.
Aside from that, blazers.

*cracks knuckles and does hand stretch thing*
Etnies Marana: 17 at this point. Skated about 6 of those pairs at least (pre and post Michelin soles)
Etnies Joslin: 13 pairs. Tied with being my favorite shoe next to the Maranas.
     These two are my go-to and home base for skate shoes, so that's why I stocked up lol.
Emerica Reynolds G6: 5. Got the gold ones they did for him leaving! Wish I snagged a couple more since that's been Emerica's best shoe since the previous Reynolds Low/Mid and Herman G6 were axed.
Emerica Hsu (the nice midtop ones): 2 or 3 I think. Best shoe for me before the Marana came along. Got 1 left to swoon over.
Nike SB Dunks: 15. Some I skated and others I will skate. Some could be money makers though, but I want to skate them! I'll post a photo in another thread if anyone is interested  8)
Nike SB Blazer Mids: 8. Skated half of these straight a few years back. Lance Mountain blues I am still holding on to. *heart eyes*
eS Accel Slim (really good to skate with good insoles but isn't super durable), Accel OG before I realized they weren't as good as I thought they were going to be...
Vans Halfcab and Halfcab Pro.

I am sure there were a couple others I bought more than once over the years but can't remember right now.
Definitely had a shoe crisis a couple years back and wanted to try everything because life is short! But also because I was compensating for a decline in skate ability/time to skate, so SHOES MUST BE THE ANSWER! no.. not entirely. It was me, it was always me.

Quick PSA: it's cool to enjoy gear and stock up to some degree, but definitely try to be mindful with time you can devote to actually skating the gear you buy/hoard. It might deteriorate if you wait too long, or maybe your foot changes shape/size over time, or maybe vulcs hurt like fuck, so you can only skate cups now, etc. I am not your parent, so do what you want, but just want to share an experience from someone who went too far experimenting..

truth af. i bought a pair of es shoes at a 55% discount for my winter skate shoe and shortly after, i deep fried my ankle and now i cant skate for at least the rest of the year, let alone walk normally. my current shoes are still at like 90%, too and i got 2 decks and a pair of stage viii's ready to go. whatever, fuck it. lifes a bitch and then you die.

Vans Chukka boots. They need to keep a Pro Chukka boot in the line up.

I have shamelessly owned no less than 20 pairs of black suede accels. Iíd mix it up and go tan once a year. Maybe sprinkle in some K1s. Black suede as well

Chronologically and ones Iíve skated:

Accel, Dunk High, Soca, Half Cab, Sk8-Hi, Nike Teams, Janoski, CTAS High + Low, Slip On Pro... some others but canít remember. These the main ones that stick out cause they skated the best.
