Sneakerness asked some sneaker heads and influencers from all over the world 3 questions.
Last but not least we asked Viennas finest sneaker shop owner Pauli of Stil Laden & PAAR 3 questions:
Why did you started collecting sneakers?
Since the day I started with skateboarding, sneakers were always a big part of the culture. My first pair of skateboardsneakers were the Nike Delta Force, cause during that time we had no skateshops in Vienna this was back in 1988, so this were my first contact with sneakers and it last till today. I also remember the time in the early 90’s when we tried to get our hands on Puma Suedes, Clyde and adidas Superstar and Gazelle these were the sneakers to skate with, because of the Beasite Boys Album “Check your Head”, the one with the Coverphoto of all 3 guys sitting on the sidewalk with Puma’s and adidas – that was the shit!
First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
Actually I had to say – adidas gazelle, but like everything in life it changed after the years!
Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
