I was in sixth grade when my passion for sneaker collecting began! It was exactly when I saw Grant Hill wore the FILA Grant Hill 2 and Scottie Pippen wore the Air More Uptempo during his stint in Dream Team III. So I asked my parents whether they could buy me the Grant Hill 2 or the Nike Uptempo. Thankfully, they decided to buy both.
What I have noticed when it comes to collecting sneakers is that some people buy sneakers for investments and others collect kicks for personal use. Whether you are in reselling pairs or using sneakers for personal use, to me they are both considered as a sneakerhead.
Wearing a new pair of sneakers enhances your look as well as the good feedback you will received from other sneakerheads! It makes you feel better and keeping you in good spirits throughout the day.
I truly hope to have a Nike x Offwhite™ x Fragment collab.
For me, the Reebok Club C. It’s a very simple silhouette with its wide range of colors.
I truly love the works of Virgil Abloh. He is certainly an artist who demonstrates a higher level of commitment in artistic creation.
I really want to have the Jordan 4 Manila.
Richie Le and Qias Omar are my favorite sneaker content creators.
I also love collecting jackets/hoodies such as Off-white™, Stone Island, CPFM and FOG essentials.
