there are very few people who know about the real size of my collection. you can always really only see the tip of this huge heap, i'd say. i bought my first pair of sneakers in 1989 from the money i earned as a trainee. i really started collecting about 15 years ago. actually, it wasn't consciously at first, but later i was more aware of it, and it became more and more. at some point i had to realise that it was more than just a passion. the whole thing escalated a bit and brought me to where i am today -- on this mountain of shoes. they are everywhere, all over the flat. sneakers are put wherever there is space left.
yes, it has turned out fantastic -- a lot more space, a lot more light than before -- and i can finally enjoy my hobby again, which wasn't possible before. what i really like is that i can put sneakers out into the spotlight, with not all of them in the boxes where you can't see them anyway. what i also find great is my turntables getting their own space so i can finally listen to music again. now you can really recognise it as a living room again, and it can be used as such.
