3 Questions, 3 Answers – Erol Taskoparan


Sneakerness asked sneakerheads and influencers from around the globe three questions.

We talked to Erol Taskoparan from Egotrips.

How did you get into sneakers?

I have been wearing sneakers for as long as I can remember without ever put much thought into it. When I started playing basketball at 12 or 13 I was only interested in basketball sneakers but even then we cared more about the players that wore them and not so much about the different brands.

When did you know you were hooked?

It started taking shape about two or three years ago when we launched our Need More project, when I started taking an interest in who was doing, what models existed, etc. but it really developed into a passion with the intense contact with the community: the conventions, the shops, the collabs, the people behind it all, finding out how it all came to be.

Which sneaker do you think should make a comeback?

The Adidas Streetball from 1995
