Nice Kicks — A “Sneak Peek” Inside Sneaker Grandpa’s Shoe Rooms

This interview with ‘Sneaker Grandpa’ makes me quite emotional ; a true sneakerhead who’s not interested in following the overtrodden Nike/Jordan path, and chooses his own: namely, quality collabs (New Balance and Reeboks are his preference).

He talks us through his enviable (and mint) collection of 25th Anniversary Classic Leathers, as well as a few others, and what they each mean to him.

“A lot of people show us the same stuff over and over again but, I definitely wanted this season to be full of stuff we just haven’t seen before, and you definitely did that…” Wonderful stuff. —BokOne
