Everyone who i know thinks this is wierd,but i dont :)

I have 55 pairs of adidas superstar trainers and growing, all boxed,all different. i have a compulsion to buy them.Dunno if it stems from wanting some when i was little and not being able to have them.I literally have to stop myself buying every pair i see, so most of them are rare ones that i will never wear or sell:confused:
my lads think its pretty cool,and my mrs,but everyone else thinks i have an illness,i have some mates with 100 pairs +.Only superstars tho,no other trainers.

I thought I was Just me ! A: A:

I have 44 pairs at the moment :D

But I think I may have taken it a stage further ? I only buy the Superstar II and I only buy my size even when I know that they are rare and I'll never wear them LOL:

And I know exactly what you mean about it being an illness, I'm fairly sure is a form of OCD for me. I once saw a nice pair in a shop while staying down in London for the weekend. Decided not to buy them as I wasnt that flush. But then after leaving the shop, for the next 3 hours felt stressed and irritable, ended up going back and buying them and all was well :eek:

I'm getting better now, and I even managed to sell 10 pairs last year !!!!

I must say, I love animals but if my dog chewed up my Ian Browns he would be on a way way ticket to the RSPCA pound !! :D

I bought two pairs of the Ian Browns, as I knew I couldn't resist wearing them, and the Underworld ones too.
I wouldnt pay the premium for the Top Secrets either. I know I'm insane, and that stops me, but anyone that buys those isn't aware of their "issues" :D

I'm a size 7 (which can make buying rare stuff quite difficult as UK8 is the size they use for samples and tests I think?)

Even have steel toecapped versions for work !

Reading your first post i assumed you were a girl as they like lots of shoes but trainers must mean your a butch lesbian... especially as you mention your Mrs... nothing wrong with girls collecting shoes, it's completely normal but if you were a bloke i'd have to say you were either gay or retarded.

I'm not gay but I do sometimes help them out when they're busy.

I've been told I'm retarded many times, but I don't have a certificate or anything.

This thread is clearly going nowhere as I dont think anyone can compete with grown men collecting one particular brand of trainers. And in such numbers. And more than one of you.

It has redefined my outlook on the World.

But I thank you. I have bookmarked this for the next time my wife (or anyone) accuses me of having strange interests.

I spend a lot of my time trying to convince my paranoid girlfriend that she has not got a stalker. Well she is not really my girlfriend yet.
