We all like sneakers, or at least some of them. During our journey through life, we might cross paths once or twice with a pair that catches our attention. However, not every sneaker fan is a sneakerhead. It takes a new level of addiction and commitment to earn that title. Also, it takes a lot of time, dedication, and a good bunch of disappointments to join the club.
A sneakerhead is a die-hard, passionate sneaker fanatic who would do anything to get a hold of a pair they want. Anything can range from using a sneaker bot to paying hefty resale prices on the aftermarket. So, how can you know if you’re a sneakerhead?
Well, there are signs so bold and hard to miss that show you belong in this community. Signs that show without a doubt how much impactful sneakers are on your life. And though there are numerous indicators, like spotting a fake pair 100 miles away, and knowing the name of every Jordan ever released, we chose 10 signs to share with you.
How rewarding is it to be a sneakerhead?
Being a sneaker fan has its pros and cons. Sometimes you’re freaking out cause you missed on a release, other times you’re over the moon because you copped. And while copping sneakers and being obsessed over them comes with a s**t load of stress and heartbreak, it can be rewarding both emotionally and financially.
And whether you’re young, old, a man or a female sneaker head, there’s always a place for you. But Keep in mind once you enter this community getting out is not easy. And once you flip a pair for the first time, it’s highly likely you’ll do it again and again.
