Sneakerness asked some sneakerheads and influencers from all over the world 3 questions.
Here you go with Marc from Seven Sneaker Store.
Why did you start collecting sneakers?
My passion for shoes comes from basketball. I have been playing basketball since 1991. I always loved kicks but never took the decision “I will collect shoes”, just had more and more shoes in my closet, so it became a collection. The first shoe I didn’t wear was a Jordan XI Concord from 2001. I had an OG Concord in 1996 but rocked it to death, loved it so much and I bought it again in 2001. I think it was also the first shoe I had twice in the same colorway.
First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
Jordan 7 Bordeaux. 1992, a team-mate had them, I wanted them badly but they were too expensive for a ten year old boy. My mother bought me a Reebok Pump Blacktop for half of the price. Now I am laughing about it and say that this frustration is the reason why I ran behind shoes all over the world. Those Jordan 7 are the origin of my passion and the main reason I gave my store the name Seven.
Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
For me there are only two overhyped models, the Nike Air Yeezy I & II.
