Starting his sneaker collecting journey with Vans, Dion @dionmansion fell in love with Nike after seeing some of the collaboration with Travis Scott. Being an Indonesian, he wants to see Nike do a collaboration with local brands that include batik!

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

I have been interested in sneakers since 2017 when I was 17 years old. My first sneakers were Vans because they have many models and designs.

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

When Nike Air Jordan collaborated with famous rap artist, Travis Scott.

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

Buying a fresh pair of sneakers is just like adopting a child that I love very much, carrying it safely, and away from all dangerous threats, LOL. But it happens to me every time I buy new shoes.

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

Balenciaga, because the brand's design is very out of the box, inspires me as a designer to make a work of art.

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

Nike x Indonesian culture. Because I live in Indonesia, I really hope that Nike collaborates with a Batik - a traditional Indonesian clothing.

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

Nike Sacai, Nike Air Force One, and Nike Air Jordan.

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

I would love to own a pair of Nike x Billie Eilish!

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

Clothing or pants, definitely.

Where can people find you on social media?
