Eventually, the North Carolina native settled on starting with one of her favorite sneakers of all time, the Retro Air Jordan 1s, at the top left of the Adidas Superstar Hombre first Nike Air Max Tavas Mujer group of shelves.

But I’d ask my father and he would come through.”Unaccounted for in this number is a towering stack of four full plastic tubs — one of which contains close to 20 pairs of Kobes. Stray boxes are scattered, and the closet door opens to additional piles. “In my lifetime, I’ve probably owned thousands of pairs … maybe more … because I’ve given away so many,” Young says. “I try to get away from them and say, ‘OK, look. I’m not buying any more.’ But it’s so Nike Air Odyssey Femme hard.

On Christmas of 1995, Tamera, then 9, received her first pair of basketball shoes: the Fila Grant Hill 1s. She never wore them on a basketball court, but a pair of the Fila Grant Hill 2s, which she copped when they retroed in 2013, now sit on one of the top shelves in her sneaker room as a reminder of her sneaker beginnings.Young’s mother, Lynda, gave her the original Filas – and she hasn’t bought another pair of sneakers for her daughter since. “My Nike Air Max 270 Womens mother Nike Air VaporMax Mujer was never Nike Air Max Tavas Womens a fan of paying hundreds of dollars for shoes,” she says. “But I would ask my father and he would come through.”In 1996, Greg Young succumbed to Young’s begging and purchased her first pair of Air Jordans: the “Taxi” 12s, which she broke out with black shoestrings, accented by white specs, for the Girls Inc. basketball league in Wilmington, North Carolina. In March 2001, a special early release of the Air Jordan “Cool Grey” 11s landed at noon on a weekday. Despite being in school, a preteen Tamera had to be in that line.
