I am a sneakerhead episode 107 - @Mr.Formstripe

I go by the name @mr.formstripe and I am based in Melbourne, Australia. I have had an interest in sneakers for a very long time. I started to get incredibly involved into sneakers at the age of 15 and it was at that age that I found my passion and subsequently my calling!  What interests me the most about sneakers is the brand and the brand story. I have an affinity for 90s vintage running and am fascinated by the marketing advertisements and brand stories during that era.

All of the ads were ahead of their time and still talked about 25 years later. When a story like Trinomic, EQT or Zoom Air is still brought up and even retroed that is when you know it was a brand strategy that was well executed.

As you can tell, I am a PUMA aficionado and showcase my rare vintage PUMA collection as well as highlight the upcoming Tier 1 (CREAM) releases.

I like to think I have a collection that not many people have seen or have heard about. So I find it valuable to show them the great history and stories that the PUMA brand has to offer.

My favourite shoe that I own would have to be the PUMA Disc XC 6000. I plan to post a pic soon but was a shoe that I have been searching for in my size for a LONG time!
