It is a necessity in life to buy shoes but some people love them so much they collect them. Because collecting can be a lot of fun, and shoes are a great way to look good and add style to your clothing, gifting your favorite collector with shoes this Christmas season is a wonderful idea. That only leaves the question on what kind to by them. So here is the top five list of shoes any collector must have.
Nike Foamposite Lite Kryptonate
They won’t make you fly but the Nike Foamposite Lite kryptonate will have you jumping for the stars. Coming in a electric green and black design, the kryptonate sneakers were made for basketball and became famous when Nate Robinson made his legendary dunk in 2009 after leaping over D. Howard.
Depending on where you go to shop you can purchase the Kyrptonate for as low as $99.99.
Ducks Trainer 1
The Duck Trainer 1 is another sneaker manufactured by Nike. What most people do not know is that Nike and the University of Oregon has always been aligned and that is where the Duck Trainers came in. The University of Oregon are the Ducks and whether it is football or basketball this school gets exclusive pairs of shoes.
Part of the reason I love these sneakers is the color and style of them. They come in a rich green, brown, black, or yellow color and bares a duck logo on the back. These shoes are a great pair of shoes and you do not even have to be from Oregon to wear them.
Air Jordan 2010
Michael Jordan? Why not when he was one of the best in the business. You may not be able to see him play like he used to but you can walk in style just like him in the 2010 addition of his Air Jordan’s.
These sneakers come in red, white, and black and are designed to support your ankles.
Be prepared to a pay a little bit. These limited edition shoes will be selling for $250 minimum and currently can be pre-bought. There official release that not come until next year.
The Air Garnett III
Another by Nike, the Air Garnett III meets all expectations when it comes to shoe collectors. This is the first real distinct shoe made in the Air Garnett line that really stands out. With its rich blue and white leather color these shoes are known to stand the test of performing. The only real drawback with these shoes is they have no pull strap making them difficult to get on. Currently you can get these shoes around $139.00.
Elton Brand & the Converse EB2
Available exclusively at JC Penny’s for $65.00, these converse live up to everyone’s expectations. With a rich black design with some red and white the converse EB2 will have you jumping for hoops in no time. Unlike other styles you can also purchase these shoes in a white and black design.
If you are shoe collector or know someone that is than I suggest listing any of these from the top five shoe collectors sneakers on your list this year.
