Noel Gallagher's habit
09:30 07 June 2005
Noel Gallagher has become addicted to buying trainers since giving up drugs.
The Oasis star now has hundreds which he never wears.
The wild rocker - who once famously claimed taking drugs was like "getting up and having a cup of tea in the morning" - says he is obsessed with buying vintage Adidas trainers.
He told Britain's Daily Telegraph magazine: "Since I gave up being a professional drug user, I've always got to be addicted to buying something. And Adidas trainers have become my vice.
"I don't know how many I've got, hundreds. My girlfriend's friends come round and tell me I've got a problem."
Noel, 38, is also addicted to buying guitars.
He said: "I have 99 guitars in total. I don't know what it is about my personality. My girlfriend reckons it's because I was broke when I was younger."
