Sneakerness asked sneakerheads and influencers from around the globe three questions.
We talked to Rami Villalobos, deputy editor-in-chief of Praise Mag.
How did you get into sneakers?
Back then I broke up with my first girlfriend and needed something to take my mind off it. I met up with a few of my friends in my village and one of them wore a Nike Air Max 90. I had never seen a shoe that cool before. I went straight back home after that and told my mom about the shoes.
When did you know you were hooked?
When I went to my first campout with my friends. We drove to Cologne from our village at 1 AM to camp for the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte V “Cove” for a total of 60 hours. We were freezing and only ate junk food. When I held the shoes in my hands for the first time I was shaking with excitement. I had never owned a shoe that beautiful before. Looking back I realise that I may have gone a little over the top and that I might have a problem.
Which sneaker do you think should make a comeback?
The Nike Air Max 1 with the old shape.
