If you collect sneakers, and you have buddies who collect sneakers, chances are you know what they like. You’ve probably been in a local boutique or online and did the “Yo! So and so has _______ ” text.
Then there are the times you’re lost in links, features, reposts, retweets, comments and likes on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other of the endless social media platforms and you stumble across someone’s feed that makes you wonder “Where you get those? Where you from? What’s your favourite?”
Well, here at TheBragAffair, we wanted to start a new feature reminiscent of going around the classroom on your first day of grade school, we are going all over the Great White North asking the same 5 questions to 5 sneaker enthusiasts. Some names you’ll know, some names you might not. Different styles, different opinions but one thing in common, the love for rubber soles and all the beauty that comes with them.
,So like Steve Nash at the charity stripe join us as we go 5 For 5.
