Damn, is it me or is this sneaker fetish thing straight exploding?
Freshness mag has pictures of people camping out for limited edition Nikes. The NYT even felt the need to write about it. Shit's about as cool as stamp collecting now. Where is the art to it now? Finding out what line to bring a sleeping bag too? I could respect sneaker fetish cats when it was about hunting down forgotten merchandise. But now they just line up overnight to let Nike hoover up their wallets. Tragic.
New formula: the rarer someone's kicks, the further I stay away from them.Posted by Abe at November 1, 2003 11:37 AM
