What is it to be a Sneakerhead?
Being a Sneakerhead consist of constantly buy shoes either for the hype or for the resell game. Many may see this hoarding but in fact its all for that passion and strong appreciation for shoes. Collecting sneaker does involve a lot of money to be spent because most of the time shoes that you may want sell out and the only way to get that sneaker is to buy it for the resell price. Being a sneaker can be hard sometimes when it comes to having money, but in the end when you have money saved up for that sneaker you really want it becomes all worth it.
Benefits to becoming a Sneakerhead
A lot of money may be involved in collecting sneakers, but if you can get hyped shoe for retail, then you are winning already. In other words you are getting that "W" (sneakerhead talk). The reason why winning shoes in retail price is beneficial because it allows you to resell the shoe for a greater price. This allowing you to gain a great amount of profits. For example, I can stay up all night for a shoes release of an yeezy 350 v2, that retails for $220 and once getting my hands to a pair of those shoes. Then I can call people that are interested and sell them the shoe for almost $2,000. With just this one shoe you are already gain a profit of $1,780.
