This Man Spent His Entire Savings On Yeezy Sneakers

Her post on Reddit was as follows: “To preface this a little, my husband used to collect sneakers but has stopped and only buys a pair every few months. He doesn’t go crazy buying pairs and his collection is rather small now. He’s sold a few of his “grails”, as he calls it, so we could put a down payment on our house. We both work reasonable jobs and have enough to save and pay for the mortgage each month. But seriously, something just clicked in his head and he apparently went crazy this weekend. I seriously cannot believe he spent that much on shoes. I come home this morning after a graveyard shift to a few shoe boxes scattered around the living room floor. I thought to myself, maybe he’s getting rid of some more pairs and don’t really give it a second thought. He comes home after his run and before I take a nap he asks what I think about those shoes in the living room. I’m like… uhh I didn’t really bother opening them since I thought you were going to give them away. He gives me a pretty stern look and I knew he wasn’t planning on it. He told me he bought them. I was like isn’t 4 pairs a little too much (assuming they were new sneakers, usually he spends about $100 for a new pair of runners). Then he dropped the bomb. He said those 10 pairs total cost us $25k. I had no idea what to say. I was completely dumbfounded. Who in their right mind spends $25k on 10 pairs of sneakers? He said he bought those 2 pairs off of a guy in a local sneaker group that he met up this morning. Each pair was $2.5k… I asked him what in the world? He said he wanted a pair of the Yeezy’s. But he had to buy 2 since he wanted “one to stock and one to rock”. I was livid at this point I thought he was done with this bs and now he spends this month’s mortgage on 4 pairs of fucking sneakers. He said the other 2 pairs he got at the mall so I’m going to get him to fucking return those. I still can’t believe he spent 25k on shoes. I’m really upset right now and I have no idea wtf to do with $2k of our money locked up in shoes.”
