Max Weston @maxwestonnn is an Australian sneakerhead who also owns his sneaker shop - Unlaced Store. His sneaker obsession started with Nike Air Max 1 Atmos Elephant and currently Air Max 1 Patta is in his sneaker rotation!

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

Nike Air Max 1 Atmos Elephant was the pair that triggered my passion for sneakers in 2015.

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

The community of the people and unique collaborations resonates with me. I also enjoy the feeling of being able to cop very limited releases!

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

The feeling is unreal; you feel vibrant, happy, and unique at the same time! Especially when you know that you are one of few in the world who owns a pair of that new sneaker.

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

Virgil will always be on top for me due to his whole story behind Off-White. The unique designs he would create, and the imagination behind him was sensational. Next would be Sean Wotherspoon, who has such an inspirational passion & mindset along with Virgil. There are many brands I enjoy following, but I love to support locals and help friends pursue with their unique brands.

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

Nike x Burberry.

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

Here are some of my favorite pairs: Nike x Burberry Jordan 4 Retro Bred, Jordan 11 Retro Bred, Jordan 3 Retro Cement, Jordan 4 Retro Metallic Purple, and Air Max 1 Patta.

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

I wanted to add either Nike MAG Back to the Future (2011) or Jordan 4 Retro Eminem Carhartt to my shoe collection.

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

I love my cars and designer bags very much.
