I stumbled across this video (The ShoeZeum) while spending the endless hours that I do on YouTube. Don’t you dare look at me weird, you know love YouTube more than you want to admit or ever thought you would. If you’ve ever been asked to describe what your own version of heaven would look like, I’m pretty sure you gave it some thought and it would be pretty epic.
For a simple guy like yours truly, my vision of heaven isn’t anything over the top or elaborate. Sure, I would have plenty of women around and chefs preparing all of my favorite foods (yes, even ones that could make my favorite fast food heart stoppers).
Other than that, all I would need is family, friends, plenty of high-def TV’s, a full court basketball court, a swimming pool, more girls, a 24 hour bar that was always packed and rockin (and it would only play old school and underground hip hop with some classic 80′s & 90′s jams mixed in DJ AM style), video game systems for those high-def TV’s, a boutique that sells the vintage t-shirts that I love, a pimped out studio to record music & beats, a place to write, and the ShoeZeum. That’s it. You have just been given a mental image of what Louie’s heaven would look like. Not bad, huh?
I’ve watched this clip 73 times and my jaw drops every single time. That place is the mecca of Nike shoes, and I’d give a kidney for it to be mine. There isn’t a shoe collection in the world that approaches it. If there is, you better watch your back because I might be robbing it soon. I take my hat off to this man’s collection. And while I’m at it, let me applaud you, Jordan Michael Geller. The ShoeZeum is spectacular, and what my vision of heaven looks like. And you thought you had a solid shoe collection.
