”TOOMANYKICKS” is a story about 11 people who grew up in a period of intense social and economic changes in Poland. Collecting sports shoes has become their passion. How many pairs is too many? That question doesn’t exist in a real sneakerhead’s world. Thanks to them, we learn about the heyday of Polish design in the last three decades of economic freedom, but we also learn a lot about the importance of sport and music in their lives. Many of the film's protagonists achieved success not only in Poland, but also internationally.In recent years, the love of sports shoes has ceased to be merely a hobby of a narrow group of people. Their passion is shared by an increasing part of the Polish society, no matter the education, origin or financial status.

Creators of the film take us on an amazing journey through bazaars full of fakes, the first official sports stores, until the times when the Internet dominated every sphere of our lives. ”TOOMANYKICKS” is the only documentary about Polish sneakerheads and one of the few films on this topic in the world.
