Turns out, they have more in common than you think.

Star Wars Nerds: People think they’re crazy when they buy action figures and never play with them

Sneaker Nerds: People think they’re crazy when they buy shoes and never wear them

Star Wars Nerds: They’re willing to wait in long lines to buy movie tickets

Sneaker Nerds: They’re willing to wait in long lines to buy shoes

Star Wars Nerds: They get nostalgic when they think about the moment they saw the Star Wars opening title scene in theaters for the first time

Sneaker Nerds: They get nostalgic when they think about the time they saw Jordan win the NBA Slam Dunk competition ’88 with his jump from the free throw line

Star Wars Nerds: They’re willing to argue that Han definitely shot first with anyone who asks

Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals with anyone who asks

Star Wars Nerds: They look down on these new kids that are all into Clone Wars and don’t appreciate episodes 4-6

Sneaker Nerds: They look down on all these new kids that are all into LeBron and don’t appreciate Magic

Star Wars Nerds: They scour the net for the latest news updates on the upcoming episode 7

Sneaker Nerds: They scour the net for the latest news on when the next retro drops

Sneaker Nerds: Ask them why the Air Jordan 1s initially cost His Airness $5,000 per wear or which “Superman” shoe has a certain hypnotising effect and they’ll know

 

What commonalities would you add?
