Vinh @nikeverydayevenonsunday is both an Australian sneakerhead and Bboy who loves wearing vintage Nike shoes. It makes him feel like he's a part of the culture, living the stories behind them. As a vintage lover, he could not wait to own a pair of Nike AM 95 x Eminem!

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

It was the moment I got a pair of size 20 US from the Up There store. I was super excited and wanted to see how massive shoes of that size would be. Moreover, the pair that introduced me to the sneaker world is the Nike AM 90 Infrared (size 20).

Nike AM 95 x Stash resonates with me the most.

Getting vintage shoes that are still wearable makes me feel like a part of the culture, and I am living the stories behind the shoes.

My favorite creators/designers are Tinker Hatfield, Stash (Graffiti Artist), Dave Ortiz of DQM, and Sergio Lozano.

I hope there will be Nike (especially AM95) x myself collaboration someday.
