If you have read any of my blog posts or Instagram posts over the past week or so, then you know I managed to get a sneaker I have wanted since the day I first heard rumours about it (KAWS x Jordan 4). That sneaker is everything I wanted it to be and I am beyond happy to have it. But. Let’s be real here. It was not inexpensive to buy it. I am not someone who can be comfortable spending what I spent and sleeping at night. I knew it would mean selling some of my other sneakers.
For the last week I have done just that. I have sold about 6 pairs of sneakers I don’t wear that much. It should be easy right? I don’t really wear them and so I should be happy about using them to pay for something I truly love. And yet here I am, conflicted. It has been much harder than I thought it would be to let some of these go.
My Infrared Jordan 11 Futures were such a great shoe. I am one of the few people who really liked the first Futures and I had two pairs. They were comfortable and looked great with skinny jeans. I wore these all the time during the first year I had them. I remember the day I got them, I couldn’t even wait to get home and put them on right away.
By FAR the hardest to sell has been my Jordan 11 Legend Blues. This was the first Jordan I ever lined up for (see my blog post on CanadaGotSole for the story on how I started getting into Jordans). I had no idea what to expect. I was so worried we wouldn’t get them! Of course we did and just like with the Futures I had them on before we even got home (to take pics this time). We celebrated by going out to brunch where we ran into two other girls talking about Legend Blues and how much they wanted them. I’m going to miss these shoes.
