Sneakerness asked some sneakerheads and influencers from all over the world 3 questions.
Here you go with Leandro Eicher from the upcoming Titolo store in Zurich!
Why did you start collecting sneakers?
I grew up in the golden era of rap and at the age of 12 I started to collect vinyl records, that was the beginning. I tried to figure out what these lyrics meant. Quotes like the ones from Big L: “I got more soul than Nike Airs, givin MC’s nightmares” or MF DOOM: “And just for kicks make ’em gel like ASICS” have put things on the right track and brought me into the “sneakergame”.
First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
This is a quite hard question, it’s not easy to name one of all my favourites.
I still love the Nike Jordan 3 White Cement unconditionally but right now i’m more into runners and vintage stuff.
Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
I guess there are too many overhyped sneakers. If there was an award for the ugliest sneaker on the planet Crocs and the Yeezy would be in good company… That doesn’t mean that I don’t like Kanye West in general…I still listen to his first album.
