Community Collections pays homage to the recently separated combo of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Although this sneaker collection consists of mainly recent South Beach styles, it calls Pittsburgh home. Mike Biondi, also known as @bigmiiiike, originally started collecting back in 1998, but has recently revived his stock with recent Nike LeBrons and Li-Ning Way of Wades. Focusing on quality over quantity, Biondi is the proud owner of some of King James and D-Wade’s most sought-after silhouettes. Overcoming the dilemma of having to find size 14s, this collection consists of everything from a one-of-two “What the LeBron” 9 to unreleased WOW exclusives.

“My interest for sneakers started around the age of 13. I grew up wearing various Nike Basketball silhouettes, Air Maxes, and of course Air Jordans. I strayed away from shoes when I went off to college because I just didn’t have the extra income. I got back into sneakers about four years ago, and now my love for them is at an all-time high. Over those last four years, with exception to the “Doernbecher” Collection, I have transitioned away from Jordan Brand. I feel that the quality continues to decline, and I would rather spend my money on a shoe that is more durable. The staples in my collection now are predominantly LeBrons 7-10, and Way of Wades.”
