To me, a personal collection of any kind should be a labour of love accumulated over many years filled with pieces you love (and loathe but just cant get rid of). Starting a collection just for the sake of it will not be enjoyable at all because you’ll basically be collecting to flex on social media (lets face it, theres little point otherwise) and to impress those kinds of ppl you need to buy whatever is hyped at the moment and if you’ve been in the game for a minute youd see whatever -that- is, its finicky and swings wildly from one week to the next. You’ll NEVER be able to keep up and you’ll more than likely end up resenting everything about the “scene”.
Buy what YOU like, but more so buy what you’ll wear otherwise youll just have all that money sitting there getting a poor investment return on likes and hearts. I can think of a lot better things to do with my money than try to have my belongings validated by strangers
As for KDs, ive never been a fan plus I don’t ball anymore. I’d recommend trying them on first, you might like the look of them but the fit might be uncomfortable for you, again, that’s only if you plan on wearing them.
