Sneakerness asked some sneaker heads and influencers from all over the world the same 3 questions.
Theres no “Roeschtigraben”! Our man Gaetan aka Giggy from the store Cellophane in Lausanne. A passioned J’s collecter.
Why did you started collecting sneakers?
It all started whit my 1st pair of Nikes, the Air Jordan 7 Bordeaux. And then the genius of Nike Marketing made the rest, every year a new pair, every all star game a new release, the 8’s, the 9’s and on and on… Every colorways, every collabs and then its too late, you realize that you have thousands of pairs stocked in your room, hahahahaha…
First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
Gotta go with the AJ 6 Black Infrareds from 1991… My neighbor used to have them, I was crazy about them, and then the mania went on…
Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
The NSW X Steven Alan collection… So much hyped that I did not even get a single pair in my size, they sold out in minutes, hahahah, fuck the hype!
