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.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
See how the rest of Southeast Asia are upping their denim-and-sneaker game.
