Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes revealed his love for sneakers and he currently owns 180 pairs of shoes. The fanaticism for Mahomes extends far enough that he has kept an entire room dedicated to his extensive shoe collection.

In the house that he bought in 2019, he reveals that having such a room was always on his mind. During his interview with Bleacher Report, Mahomes states, “We renovated a lot of the house. The last thing was the shoe room. That has been something that I’ve wanted for the last six, seven years, at least.” He currently lives in the home with his wife Brittany Matthews and their daughter Sterling Skye.

Mahomes’ shoe room is one of a kind with a custom closet outfitted with display lights and shelves to hold his sneakers. He also has racks for his sunglasses with a security camera as he jokes about protecting them from brother Jackson Mahomes. He believes his younger brother will try to access his collection and wants to remain on his toes to ensure they aren’t tampered with.

Patrick Mahomes is not the only sporting great who is a sneakerhead

While the Chiefs QB’s love for sneakers appears unrealistic, legendary Swiss Tennis player Roger Federer is on another level. Federer owns over 250 pairs within his shoe collection. He has been making investments in his passion for shoes by becoming an investor and advisor for Swiss shoemaker On. But Mahomes has a more dynamic collection with shoes from his sponsor Adidas, some TV show-themed shoes, and finally some customized shoes with inscriptions.
