Hapsari Listya
January 1, 2023

Air Max 1 is the pair that triggered Nukman @nukmandaboom passion for sneakers. For him, wearing new kicks feels like wearing a crown, and the smell of new shoes is addicting!

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

The moment that triggered my passion for sneakers is when I saw someone posted the Air Max 1 stacked on a shelf. It looks pretty cool and nice!

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

I always remember my first experience queuing shoes at Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur for the earliest release of NMD 'City Stock' in March 2016.

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

For now, I'm more into Nike Dunk and SB Dunk.

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

It feels like wearing a crown, and the smell of new shoes is so fresh. I can't put it away!

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

It's already released though, but I wish they could re-release them! The pairs that I'm talking about are Kid Robot Air Max 1 and Murakami x Air Max 1.

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

I love Atmos and Kid Robot!

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

Travis X Air Jordan 1 'Brown and Blue.'
