Kerry Thach @kerrythach is an American sneakerhead who fallen in love with sneakers after copped Bape NMD. He loves the collaboration between Union LA and Nike because of its amazing design.

What was the moment you first got drawn to sneakers, and which pair of sneakers triggered your passion?

I've always been a big fan of sneakers, but it was the Bape NMD that started it for me. I always wanted a pair, but the price was too high for me to purchase. I never knew a sneaker could resell for that much. From there, I went after every sneaker.

What's one moment or trend in the history of sneaker culture that resonates with you?

I can't think of any.


Please describe how it feels to you when you get and wear a new pair of kicks?

It's happiness. Nothing beats wearing a new pair of sneakers for the first time.

What are some of your favorite creators/designers or brands and why?

I love what Union LA is doing with their Nike collaborations. They make each shoe their own but don't take away from what makes it great.


What is one sneaker collaboration that doesn't exist, but you wish/think should exist?

I'd like to see more collaborations with sneaker boutiques - nothing in particular. I like the creativity the shops come up with.


What are some of the current pairs of sneakers in your rotation?

The sneakers in my current rotation are the Jordan 1 Union Black Toe, Jordan 1 Low 'Travis Scott x Fragment', Jordan 4 Union Off Noir, Nike SB Dunk Chunky Dunky, and Nike x Off-White Jordan 4 Sail.


What is your ultimate holy grail sneaker that you have not managed to acquire so far?

I would love to own a pair of Jordan 1 Fragment or Jordan 1 Dior High.

Other than kicks, what are some of your daily essentials or treasured items?

My camera!
