Would you travel far just for a pair? Why?
We always have to remember to live within our means especially when we are on a budget. We all know that some of these pairs are highly coveted and could really break the bank.
But, If the situation permits then yes, by all means. If you are passionate about collecting sneakers or just about anything in this world then traveling for a pair just makes it more valuable for the person and would definitely make a story out of it.
