I am a sneakerhead

I am a sneakerhead episode 16 - @Jonsneaks

Hi, my name is Luca Fischer, I'm 18 years old. I live in Switzerland, Jona exactly, a city near to Zurich.

I came into the Sneakergame at the beginning of last year. It all started with a Pair of Retro Jordan 4 (Columbia). I waited for them in line, in front of our local Sneaker Store. It was such a special feeling, to hold the Sneaker in your hands, for which you waited for a couple of hours. With the time, i came more and more into the game, through the Sneaker pages I followed on the social media and other Sneakerheads i met . A 1/2 Year later when I visited a Sneaker event, I came in touch with the Gel lyte 3 from Asics. I really liked the special details, materials and especially the splitted tongues on this model.

My first one was the HAL (Bricks and Mortar). From this moment on I really started collecting Sneakers. I bought grails online and went sometimes camping for them. I like the thing, that you can be together with other Sneakerheads and talk about the latests news and other things. Also the reason why i collect rare Sneaker is, that i like to wear Sneakers not everyone has.

In January this year (2016) I started with a friend to create a Sneaker account on Instagram, where we can upload fresh pics of our collection and show it to other people. I often go shooting with guys, who are also in the game, so I can always add Pictures to my Page and creat acquaintances. Now i got a collection with a wide range of brands such as Puma, Nike, Asics, New Balance, Adidas (Yeezys). For more on-feet Pictures follow my page @jonsneaks.

Here are my Top 3 Sneaker from my collection:

1. Yeezy 350 Turtle dove

I'm a big Kanye West fan, so it was a must cop for me. The quality and comfort on this Sneaker is A1. I had to pay resell but it was definitely worth it.

2. Hanon "Wildcats" x Asics Gel lyte 3

This Colorway is Insane, quality materials. I love the flames on the heel.

3. Sneakerfreaker "Bloodbath" x Puma Blaze of Glory

Awesome colors taken. Comfiness level on top.
