I'm offically starting my sneaker collection this summer & I'm geeked as EVER ! I already have 3 sneakers to start off with but they're no OG's or HEAT. I plan on buying 90% of my shoes from online shops so help me out.

What type of online shoe stores do you recommend ?

What buyers from eBay do you recommend ?

What type of shoes do you recommend starting off with ?

Just to let ya know I do have a summer job + is expected to make 2G , I plan on spending 1G on shoes. How many shoes should I have if I base my collection off Jay's , AF1's , Air maxes , Apple Bottoms & Coach.


Please and Thank you

i wouldnt spend my money on apple bottom shoes lol. :/ thats just me. not alot of heat there. butt defenitley DONT buy shoes that have cheap looking colorways or came out all over the malls and what not. onlineee is the way to go! i buy my shoes off of ebay mostly. just buy them from people that have over 99% POSITIVE feedback and have sold alot of shoessss. lol. try sneakerhead.com, pickyourshoes.com, or my favvvv.: flightclubla.com

ohhh and what i like to do is get shoess that would sell out quicker. like if you have $100 dollars and wanna buy some veryy cute air maxess or coach shoes get the air maxes firstt, cuz hey they might not be there tomorrow but coach shoes probably wouldd beee. and plus everyone has em. lol.

LOL, I admit AB's are far from heat but they have some pretty dope designs..but it pisses me off 'cuz they get old/run down real quick [gonna have e-mail Nelly 'bout that..]. Anyway thanks for site's 'cuz like I said 90-95% of my shoe buying IS gonna be from online [shoe stores just seem lame now ya know ?] Can ya give me the link of some good eBay buyers ? Thanks for the advice =]

personally i'd save up the 2g's for something else.
buy whatever you like. pairs that you would wear all the time, pairs with your favorite colors or pairs that are easy to match with your wardrobe. shop on ebay for good deals but be wary of fakes. shop on FSF, you'll be sure to find a pair in your size.

the majority of my shoes either came from femalesneakerfiend and solecollector. I've bought 2 from ebay, which i got for good prices. you need to do alot of searching and legit checking. Overall I think fsf is a great place to find your size. And as for shoes, it's really a preference on what you want to buy. First I was all about dunks from 2004-2005. then from 2006-2007 i was all nike sb's. and from then to now I'm only about jordans. lol so yeh. good luck to you.
