1. Who (are you?), What (do you for a living?), Where (do you live?)

Hi everyone and thanks Sneakerplaats for the invite, my name is Pierre I
work in commerce and I live in France in Brittany.

2. When did your love for sneakers start and why do you love sneakers so much?

My passion for sneakers started in 2009, I came across a shop that sold
SUPRAS and I fell in love, and then I got to know the story of the air max 1 that I mostly collect today. Today and every day I like sneakers more and more, I immersed myself in the air max 1 seeing all these models, each crazier than the other.

3. Do you remember your first pair of sneakers? Which pair was it?

Unfortunately no, I remember that at the start I bought everything (air
jordan 1, kyrie, air max plus ect…) without knowing the history of the
pairs.

 4. What’s your favorite brand and model?

Without hesitation Nike Air Max 1

 5. How many sneakers do you have in your collection?

+- 100 sneakers

 

6. What’s your favorite pair from your collection?

It is undoubtedly the air max 1 parra amsterdam from 2005.

 

7. Which pair(s) are still on your wish list?

The one I don’t have, that is too much to say haha!

 

8. Do you have a favorite sneakerstore or -shop?

No, I buy all over the place, I prefer to buy with other collectors and of course I do the maximum raffle on the pairs that interest me. Otherwise stockx.

9. Which brand and / or model would you never wear in your life? And why is that?

the one that comes to mind is directly balenciaga, flip flops in plastic bottles at 700e and so on, no thanks

 

10. Which sneaker in your collection was the hardest to find/get?

I wouldn’t say it’s the pairs that are hard to find, but above all the good prices! however I remember that I had a hard time finding the am1 susan!

11. What advice would you like to give to new sneakerheads?

Don’t buy anything from just anyone, you have to ask for advice, sharing a passion is always pleasant

 12. What has been your biggest steal ever?

I remember coming across the OG atmos elephant from 2007 at 390e on an ad placed “a minute ago” I did not hesitate to click, and I did well, 1 min after there were already 15 requests on it!

 13. How much time a day / a week do you spend on “sneakers”?

I would say 2 to 3 hours a day.

 

14. How do your loved ones feel about your sneaker lifestyle?

My friends and my family hallucinate others understand less but myself I can understand! But everyone likes to ask me questions and I love answering them!

15. Where can people follow you on your socials? (Instagram, Facebook, etc)
