I wear nothing BUT sneakers every single day, to work or off work.

Same as when I was a young kid, through high school and through everything.

I'd say I have about 15 pairs of sneakers that I wear here and there. I have maybe 6 pairs that I have as collectibles and stored away (air jordan 11 re-releases back from 2000/2001).

I'm proud to say I was a sneaker freak long before today's kids were even born (just like video games, from childhood).

Back in the early 90's when I was in the military, through the early 2000's, I used to be a sneaker fanatic and spent a lot of money getting a new pair almost every month.

I'm jealous. I wish I could wear only sneakers. They're so comfortable and I like the way they look.

6 pairs and I don't wear them often. two pairs are easily 10+ years old, but look like new so i keep them. I recently went on vacation and purchased two new pairs of sneakers I have yet to wear them.

I own around 20 pair of sneakers. Honestly I seldom wear sneakers and have only payed full price for a pair once. I wore a pair of Nike's yesterday that I have had for 5 years and only worn 3 times. If I can buy them cheap enough I will buy them. I have never ever payed over $50 for a pair of sneakers.

I'm up to about 7 or 8 pairs of sneakers.

I like sneakers, own several, and wear them plenty. However, a good pair of dress shoes or nice pair of leather boots are just as comfortable to me. The key is owning a good pair.

I buy two pair at the beginning of the year with my tax return money. When one pair wears out I throw them away and wear the next pair. Currently I have one pair.
