I'm Ash also known as Chocolate Thunder :) I was born in Malaysia but was raised in Perth, Western Australia. I am the Marketing Director for Bento Box Design Studio and my passion for sneakers first sparked during my trip to Japan in 2015 and I have been collecting ever since. My love of sneakers quickly bled into photography and I am constantly behind the lens trying to expand my knowledge and express my creative side.

My favourite silhouette has to be the Nike Air Max 1 however I appreciate all brands with a focus on quality materials and attention to detail. My all time grail is always going to be the ATMOS x NIKE Air Max 1 "Elephant". I still consider myself a newer "sneaker head" and am always open to connect with passionate people within the sneaker and photography world so please hit me up on IG at @ash.148 even if it's only to say hello!

My number 1 favourite shoe will always be the Nike x Atmos Air Max 1 Elephant. This is my shot of them paired with my second favourite of their collaborations, the Safari. I like to call this my very own "What The Atmos".


Definitely my 2nd favourite sneaker is the Adidas Y3 Qasa High "Triple Black". I remember getting this pair and savouring every moment un-boxing it. This silhouette is loud and futuristic whilst still being very versatile in the blacked out colourway. Very wearable and I am extremely happy to have these in my collection.


One of my all time favourites, the Ronnie Fieg x Diamond Supply x Asics "Tiffany". The search for them did take a while as i really wasn't feeling Asics at the time of their release. The quality is absolutely on point and I love the details especially the heel logos.
