Hi, I'm Allen and currently live in Brussel, België. I'm originally from England and grew up on Nike and Adidas in the 90s/00s. Nowadays I wear all brands with LCS and Asics continuing to grow in my collection. I've been collecting 10+ years so expect to see a varied mix of all things good in my section.
Stash x Nike Air Force 1 Low Harbor Blue/Sport Royal-Soft Grey
The blue pack are both instantly recognisable classics. A freelance project by renowned artist Stash in collaboration with Nike, they helped shape the culture of today. However with heightened focus on runners the Air Force 1 is often forgotten about in favour of the Air Max 95. Both superb examples of a collaboration done right, this make up from the models golden era easily makes the top 10 for many collectors
LimitEDitions x Le Coq Sportif Eclat "Rose" Friends & Family Edition (1/23 Pairs) Ruby Wine
The third pair in a trilogy of eclats so far from LimitEDitions, the F&F Rose might just be the best. This pair is presented in an incredible custom wooden box and limited to just 23 pairs. The pair released on Sant Jordi's day in Barcelona (hence 23 pairs), a day of romance and thus the rose is a fitting tribute. The upper is constructed in waterproof nubuck and the shoe features the sneakerhead favourite gum outsole. A relatively subtle pair, they are very wearable and one of the jewels of my collection.
Ronnie Fieg (Kith) x Asics Gel-Lyte V "Volcano" Burgundy/Red/Pink
Nearly three years on, Ronnie Fieg's first collaboration with Asics on the Gel-Lyte V model has become a classic. Whatever you think of the man, he has consistently produced some great pairs. Asics even choose to round off the 25th anniversary of the Gel-Lyte III with the homage, a mix of Ronnie's previous creations mashed into one pair. Although not my thing it goes to show how influential he is in shaping modern sneakerhead culture. The volcano was the first and only pair I camped two days for...this shoe changed the landscape for footwear in London.
