How many pairs of sneakers do you currently own?

  • +- 60 pairs

What are your top three holy grail sneakers of all time?

  • Air Jordan 3 ‘True Blue’ (2011)
  • Air Jordan 11 ‘Bred’ (2012)
  • Air Jordan 1 ‘Chicago’ (2013)

What got you into sneaker collecting in the first place?

  • I’ve always had a love for sneakers, I don’t have the common “I saw the cool kids wearing it” story… my brother and I always appreciated nice sneakers and we were taught to work for what we want and sneakers were always on top of that list. Back then I had to work around the house, do chores – cut the lawn, clean the yard, paint the house… the usual if I wanted my parents to buy them, until I could afford them myself. That was when my collection grew, copped like one, two pairs a month. I even tried to collect all the Air Jordan sneakers from Jordan 1 to 23, I got pretty close too. I have calmed down with coppin sneakers though, I had no other responsibilities back then.

What is your favorite way to style a pair of kicks with an outfit?

  • KEEP IT SIMPLE, I prefer being under dressed wearing sick kicks.

If you could only wear one pair of sneakers for the rest of your life, which silhouette and colorway would you choose?

  • Hypebeast Answer – Air Jordan 1… but nah I would say my Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flynit ‘Sport Red’… Super comfy.

What is your ultimate favorite sneaker brand and why?

  • That’s easy, Nike has always been my preferred brand, simply because they have always been ahead of the game regarding their style, comfort and just overall look.

What are your go-to sneaker stores to shop the latest drops?

  • Well these days the latest drops don’t make it to the shelves, therefore Nike online, Lemkus and Archive Store are my go-to stores.
