United By the Beat
Denim for Sneakerheads

The sneaker-collecting craze started back in the 1970s as part of New York City’s
hip-hop and b-boy movement. Generations later, this community of next-level shoe fanatics can be found across the world, including in Southeast Asia. We meet the individuals contributing to this global movement.

COLLIN GOH

As the co-founder of a reputable online retailer, Collin admits he won’t physically go out of his way to cop a pair of sneakers – he prefers to camp in front of his computer trawling through online stores. His favourite denim-sneaker combo: jeans with Chucks for their versatility.

My style in three words
“Classic, vintage, adventurous.”

MARCUS TAN

A dancer and choreographer who loves “the cropped look”, Marcus’s favourite denim-sneaker pairing involves a pair of runners with a perfectly cropped or pin-rolled jean. He prefers low-tops over high-tops, paired with plain socks or none at all. He describes his style as “classic yet experimental”.

The craziest thing I’ve done
to cop a pair of sneakers
“I travelled overseas to meet a seller to buy some shoes… and also sell some.”

JEREMY TAN

Jeremy's go-to denim-sneaker combination involves a simple pair of black jeans paired with plain socks and a pastel or monotone high-top sneaker. To best show off his kicks, instead of rolled up hems he prefers to leave his jeans nicely stacked above his sneakers.

My style in three words
“Minimal, comfortable, simple.”

Flight Attendant

SHAM NIZAM

A firm believer in “less is more”, Sham likes to pin-roll his jeans to better show off the selvedge, and names the Nike Air Max 1 or a pair of Asics as his go-to sneakers.

The craziest thing I’ve done
to cop a pair of sneakers
“I camped outside a Brisbane sneaker store for two hours in the cold.”
