LaMarcus Aldridge says he’s building a separate house just for his shoe collection

LaMarcus Aldridge has a lot of shoes. He can certainly afford them — he’s made around $86 million in his nine-year NBA career so far and just signed a four-year, $84 million deal with the Spurs. And being a Jordan Brand athlete, he gets a lot of them for free, too. But just how many pairs does the four-time All-Star have? So many that he’s working on building a separate house just to hold them, according to a new interview with SLAM:

Here’s what Aldridge says about his shoe collection:

I just built a house in Dallas and I have a pretty massive closet in it. I’ve got to have a huge shoe section in the middle. I filled it up within a couple weeks of being home. I have probably like 100 inside, and then about 50 on the top. I’m starting to put them on the floor. I have crazy shoes right now.

What I’m doing right now is, I’m in the process of building a separate house behind my house just for shoes, like a little show room.

These are the perks of being a high-profile NBA star.
