Ray Allen is the Ultimate Sneakerhead

Collecting sneakers has become a huge hobby and a big business in the US and around the world. And if Ray Allen’s Instagram feed is any indication, the NBA star is one of the biggest sneakerheads around.

Yesterday, he celebrated the completion of his sneaker closet by posting a photo showing off all his kicks lined up along the wall:
 

 

My closet finally got finished and my boy @sauma23 and the incomparable @elisa_ceglia her awesome mom helped get it organized. Thank you guys!!!! #sneakerhead #Jordansallday

There’s got to be at least 100 pairs there! And he wasn’t done. He gave his followers a peek at another part of the sneaker storeroom:
 

 

I guess I'll show you guys another wall. And yes I do have shoes on the wall behind me.

Impressive! But the photos are just the latest in Allen’s social media celebration of sneakers. Sometimes he’ll pull a pair of classics out of his collection and share them with the Internet, like he did 4 months ago with a couple of his personal favorite Jordans:
 

 

Going thru my closet this morning and had to take a picture of these two shoes. Two of my all time favorite Jordan's ever. What's your favorite Jordan? #brandjordan

And then there are the days where he just brags about his shoe game:

And there are the times when he goofs off with sneakers while driving:

The best, though, is when he gives shoes away. The contest typically happens in two steps. First, he sends out a photo of a pair and says be on the lookout, then he Instagrams another shot of the shoes in their come-and-find-me location:
 

 

Two pair in one day. Be on the look out again. Congrats to @alrivas88 for finding the first pair
