One Night in the Life of an Insomniac Sneakerhead

Person Backlit by Computer Screen

I never sleep on a sneaker release. Literally. The ease of browsing (and sometimes buying) sneakers on the Internet has resulted in over a decade – almost 4000 nights – of sleepless sessions sole searching in just about every corner of the World Wide Web. And I’ve taken just about as many Ls. But that’s another story.

What am I looking for as I hop between time zones on eBay, Gumtree, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, et al? Sometimes, I don’t even know. Probably scratching an itch that isnt there by looking for sneakers to buy that I definitely dont need.

Well, it’s time to cast my dark baggy eyes onto my seemingly endless Watch List in tonight’s hunt for who knows what.

1955 HOURS

It’s five minutes until the Nike SNKRS drop happens in my region. I’ll have a quick scroll on social media until it hits eight on the dot.

0420 HOURS

Ahhhh… I give up. Time to lie in bed with eyes wide open rueing the latest nine hours I’m never getting back. Maybe it’s time to buy general releases instead.
