When I was a kid, my auntie used to send me a Nike Shox package from Australia, and my love for sneakers began. I learned to look for sneakers at thrift stores before purchasing the Nike SB Dunk Low 'Gumsole.'
During my trip to Hong Kong in 2017, I bought another pair of sneakers, and my obsession with sneakers has grown since then.
When the pandemic hit, I decided to sell some of my sneaker collections, because I did not want them to be damaged. We sneakerheads know if it is better to sell our pairs than to never use them. LOL.
The origin of sneaker hip-hop culture from the '70s to the '80s era. In my opinion, a sneakerhead is someone who has a passion for sneakers, tries to collect different pairs from various styles and brands, and most importantly, understands sneaker culture.
People who prefer only fame and popular sneakers, unaware of its historical context, experience a different outcome.
Currently my sneakers rotation are: Nike LDwaffle Sacai Clot/Undercover/Fragment, Vans Mismatch, Nike Dunk Lows, Nike Jeff Staple x Dunk Low Pro SB 'Panda Pigeon', Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Offline Slip-On, and New Balance.
When I unbox and smell my new sneakers, I feel like an entirely new person. It always makes me smile because it feels amazing.
Besides relieving my stress, I am always thrilled to rock them.
Collaboration between Jeff Staple × Undefeated would be dope!
I appreciate Tadanori Yokoo due to its unique design. It is obvious that Yokoo's signature style of psychedelia and pastiche engages a broad range of contemporary visual and cultural phenomena in Japan.
I admire Jeff Staple as well. Since establishing his label in the 1990s, he has contributed a significant role in the transformation of the streetwear scene from a hidden subculture to a dominant cultural force, most often by adorning his creation with a pigeon.
