3 Questions, 3 Answers – Wai from Lacebag

Sneakerness asked some sneakerheads and influencers from all over the world 3 questions.

Here you go with Wai from Lacebag Netherlands.

Why did you started collecting sneakers?
When I was young kid I didn’t got any sneakers from my parents, because they were too expensive.  But after the first time, that I went back to Hong Kong (1996). I was into sneakers, always getting  four-five pairs when I was at “sneakerstreet” Hong Kong. But nowadays it sucks at sneakerstreet, but 7-8 years backs it was really sneaker heaven for me.  After I came back from Hong Kong in 2001 I started collecting Dunks Low and later on with Jordans III, IV, VI. 

First sneaker you can remember being your favorite?
My favourite sneaker… so difficult to choose. I would say Nike Dunk Low Tokyo. One of the few Dunks I have to get.
And the Nike Dunk High “Wu Tang Clan” , was so happy to get  hold of one… Love the simple colorway and the Wu Tang logo on it. 

Which sneaker do you think is overhyped?
Most overhyped sneakers for me are the Yeezy’s 2 and the Foamposite Galaxy. People that are willing to camp few days for them or willing to pay $1000 for it.
