This leads into a conversation in which we talk about our own experiences of sneaker culture and collecting, the industry at large, the intersection of music, design and sport and some cultural landmarks to do with sneakers! We talk RUN DMC, documentaries, famous collections, and sneaker hoarding. For all this and more, join us today for this great episode!
