'It's just a big part of the swag'

Sneaker Shopping With Colin Kaepernick (2:38)

Colin Kaepernick shows off his sneaker collection and allows our cameras to follow him as he shops for more kicks. (2:38)

Colin Kaepernick loves athletic shoes and thinks the ones we wear say something about our sense of style. He's right. The next time you're in a public place, check out the shoes your typical middle-aged guy is wearing. Keep an eye out for those blue-on-white New Balance 608s and you'll see what I mean. They're everywhere and must be mandatory issue in certain demographics. Guys like Kaepernick aren't wearing them.

Not that there's anything wrong with acting your age. That's what Kaepernick is doing when he stocks entire rooms of his residence with the latest footwear, sometimes shelling out as much as $2,000 at a time.

"It's just a big part of the swag," Kaepernick said.

We can all relate to that ... unless you're wearing those 608s.
