What was the sneaker that kick started it off for you?!?
Let’s take it back, I think when I was heaps young maybe 7-8 years old, my first sneaker that I can remember was Kaypee. Do you remember that brand in the Philippines? After destroying that, next sneaker was a Jordan 4. To be honest what really got me into sneakers was watching my favourite player Grant Hill from the Detroit Pistons back in the day. The Fila GH1 started it all for me.
Could you please give us the scoop on this amazing pair of Air Max 1s?
During the early days of The Kickz Stand around 2014, while I was in Singapore for the Sole Superior event. The boys from the event introduced me to Mark Ong aka Mr Sabotage. From there I guess our friendship started. In the same year, Mark launched these series of AM1’s with different camo designs. So I hit him up and asked him to make me a pair that is dedicated to my children. Today these sneakers are still in brand new and awesome condition and have been displayed in a few Air Max Day events in Sydney over the years. When people ask me what are my grails, these are my grails. My biggest achievements in life are my children.
