Sneakerness asked some sneaker heads and influencers from all over the world 3 questions.
Here you go with Christian Wolf, one great sneaker head and influencer in Vienna!
Why did you started collecting sneakers?
When I was 16 my mom baught me my first Air Force 1 Mids in white/orion blue because I NEEDED Basketball shoes and I wanted Jordans. AJ4s were my favorite, but nowhere available. XI’s were sold out in stores immediately. So I wore my AF1’s eve-ry-day. With pride!!!
Two years later the parents of a friend of mine had a big store where they sold stuff for cheap prices.
I found several shoes that made me loose my breath. Adidas Superstars white/black, Puma Suedes in navy/white and some BK’s in all white. I was in my b-boy days and those were perfect.
After I came home i checked for my Air Force 1’s and took them to several stores if they had them or other colourways… The hunt was on! I never stopped hunting and I never will!
First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
It’s a split between Air Force 1 Mid white/orion blue and the Air Jordan IV white/cement.
Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
Air Max 1 & Air Yeezy. Actually too many sneakers are too hyped.
The mainstream passion for kicks will last a couple of years, true heads will stay in the game and those seasonal collectors will get a new girlfriend that’ll tell them that sneakers are not cool and sell their stuff for cheap.
Prices will drop and people that REALLY love shoes will celebrate. Can’t wait till that day!
