LEBRON Collectors: Tomas Roa aka @Torotrigger »

Oct 3, 2013 at 3:30 pm | stuff

This site is dedicated to all LeBron James fans, but the main focus is on sneakerheads, obviously. Here’s on of the coolest people I know, a long time Nike LeBron collector – Tomas Roa also known as @torotrigger on Instagram and NikeTalk. He’s recently been featured on nicekicks in their Community Collections segment. Additionally, he also has his own page in our collectors section, which has just been updated with some new pics. Tomas has a very well balanced collection with some healthy proportions… 2:1 LeBrons over Jordans and everything else. Check out the photos below, which include Tomas’ most prized possessions and check out the whole feature at Nice Kicks. Plus when you say something like “I didn’t get crazy about Lebrons or collecting until 2005, when I found out about NikeLebron.net. That really messed me up.“… you’re a true friend. Thank you, T!

“I had a couple pairs of Jordans and Air Maxes over the years, but I couldn’t really afford a “collection” until I started my first job out of college in 2003. I had been following LeBron James pretty closely the last 2 years of his high school career, and I figured why not spoil myself and represent “Team Lebron”; so I set out to get a pair of “First Games”. I didn’t really know there was any after-market value or anything until a while later. I just liked LeBron and the shoes were dope! Plus, I wouldn’t get shot over them, like my Dad always told me I would if I got Jordans. The “Lebrons” commercials were another one of those moments I got a little more interested in kicks. Commercials were hilarious, and the concept shoes were pretty cool. I didn’t get crazy about Lebrons or collecting until 2005, when I found out about NikeLebron.net. That really messed me up. Seeing the PEs was crazy and seeing that they were on eBay set off a light bulb. I was hooked. I found Nike Talk the following year, and it was over. Since then, I have compiled a good amount of PEs (30-40), but I have a very special place for the General Releases. I have about 130 or so pairs of LeBrons, and another 70 Jordans, Dunks, Kobes and KDs. Being from Madison, there were almost NO Jordans or limited anything, so I appreciate the online Saturdays a lot as well.”

  • I’ve just realized I have pretty much the same proportions… 140:80 but not so good with PEs, tho.

    Big thanks for being one of the most dedicated collectors I know!

    haha! Greg – i meant it, you made a small hobby into a full blown addiction.

    but in all seriousness to anyone who reads this article i truly appreciate all your help and support along the way…and as far as proportions, im glad i focused on quality over popular retros that were made out of pleather.
