Chris Paul’s shoe closet is bigger, has more Jordans than yours

Mar 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT


So, I’m thinking Chris Paul is a sneakerhead.

That photo you see to the right is from one of the bedrooms in his Los Angeles area home that was converted into a shoe closet. Seriously. Then again what else was he going to do with hundreds and hundreds of Jordans. Our own D.J. Foster would pay rent to live in this room.

Paul’s wife Jada posted the picture to Instagram and thanks to The Big Lead for finding and posting that (via Next Impulse Sports). The family calls it The Museum.

It may be the second most impressive shoe room I’ve ever seen a photo of. Seriously. Do you remember Joe Johnson’s old home in Atlanta? He had a custom-built 500-square-foot closet with a fingerprint sensor on the door to make sure nobody else got in.

    So the chances of him signing with Reebok are pretty slim, huh?

    I would hope so…?

    I have more integrity than he does, however.

      WOW, that’s profound….

      I have much more use for a room full of J’s than a championship ring

    Considering he is sponsored by jordan brand/nike he should have more jordans then everyone who has commented on this story combined

    i don’t get why almost everbody has that many shoes he might only wear one pair of shoes everyday and not use them again

    And if you know anything about Jordan’s and the sneakerheads out there and just a little bit about sports memorabilia, it’s easy to see how that collection could be sold for a LOT of money. Even if he paid (which I doubt he did because he was sponsored by them) full retail for them about $170-$200 a pop, he could resell each and every pair for more and a considerable profit.

    As long as he stays out of politics, this collection will not be a problem. Ask Imelda Marcos…she’ll tell you.

    Why does he not donate a few hundred pair to the needy. That’s just ridiculous..

    Chinese (substitute some other cheap labor nation) rubber, nylon, and plastic… Some leather. Be proud!

    And the sycro-mystic anti-irony award goes to this shoe-spokesmodel, who–when considering the conditions of the lowliest of their manufacturers–rivals Imelda Marcos in his unwittingly enabling of the harsh treatment of Filipino wage-slaves.

    500 Sq Ft of nothing but sneakers? The Imelda Marcos of the NBA!

    Guess that beats spending your fortune on blow, bling and bitches. But just by a little bit . . .

    Coming from someone that collects Jordans and buys sometimes 4 or 5 pairs a month…I love seeing closets like that

  15. loungefly74 - Mar 27, 2013 at 4:14 PM

    right now, as far as sneakers…own a pair of Jordan XIV (i’ve had those for like 10 years!), Kobe 6’s (?) (snake skin), low top chucks, and other assorted crap..:)
