Do you get an allowance? Try to negotiate w/ your parents for an allowance. Mow lawns, clean houses, do something under the table to get money. Trade with friends? Sell your shxt? Get money, buy jordans. Tada.

GET A JOB! Then use that money and learn how to spy fakes on jordans very very good, study that shit. You'll find steals on ebay, cop, and resell back on ebay and/or forums. They could be steals for you or steals to resell. Works for people I know.

Sounds like you'd have a hard time saving for one pair, let alone a "collection".

Maybe try applying for a job EVERYWHERE that you can think of or maybe just ditch the whole idea...

If you live in the city you can find a job no problem, you are just not looking hard enough. To save money don't buy from the store, try to find some deals online. JUST WATCH FOR FAKES!!!
As the guys mentioned, try reselling. If you know theres an exclusive pair coming out, buy as many as you can and then resell them when they are all sold out.(too bad you need to have some money already to do this)

It sucks for someone your age because it's a really bad time to buy retros. We're looking at a very very limited amount of releases in the next 2 years, so they might as well not even exist. You can always find a few steals on retros from 2006+ on NikeTalk. A lot of sellers sell at or just above retail.

I'm 15 as well and I kinda have a lot of shoes... What I just do, I mow lawns and I only cop the releases I truly want so I'm not just wasting money(plus if moms sees if I REALLY want it, she'll pitch in some dough). You can also find a lot of steals if you look around enough. I found very good condition Bred 11's at the dunkxchange for $100 and I've seen legit joints on ebay/iss in my size. Don't just go looking for DS kicks either cuz if you're gonna wear them and they only have little to no creases and still look clean, cop anyways.

Oh shizznit, you just have to save and dont spend money on stupid shit like half of that shit at spencers... My mom kinda figured out that she would have to pitch in alot to fuel my sneaker fetish... If the shoes are like $120, save up $100 and ask your mom to pitch in $20... Dont go off buying ugly junk just to have too, its not worth it...

You can get an old guy to give you a dollar to touch your toes, then touch your dick.
