Interview with @Wazwpomidorach


Hi! My name is Maciek. I'm a 28-year-old veterinarian from Poland. I spend most of my time working with cattle and swines. But as you can see on my Instagram feed my biggest passion is sneakers, with a special spot in my heart for... Nike Air Max 1

You sure have a special love for Air Max / Perhaps Nike in general. Why is that?

To be honest... I have no idea why has Nike become my favourite brand. Maybe because in the past I used to love their basketball shoes from Jordans. There was a short episode in my sneaker collecting career when I had few pairs of Kangaroos but at the end of the day, I decided to keep Air Max Ones only.

If you should pick your top 3, what would it be?

This is the most difficult question people ask me.
I don't have a top three of my favourite pairs. I like all of them. But if I had to pick the three most important ones, I think it would be OG 87, since they started the revolution as first shoes with a visible air system. secondly, 2003 Atmos Safari B because it was the first collab made on Nike Air Max 1 which began probably the best period for these shoes when many great collabs were created between 2003 and 2010. As the third pair, I'd have to pick Lemonade colorway from Powerwall Pack. Man... every time I see that pair I got shivers on my back :D Absolutely epic!

What's your opinion on the Air Max 1 comeback of 2017?

Nike did a great job bringing back the old shape. Air Max 1 looks way better and again many folks start buying and wearing them. Many may have thought that Air Max 1 era was gone. I think they will come back to the top in the upcoming years.


What are your expectations for Nike / the entire sneaker scene in 2018?

I want new colorways! I don't like the decision of bringing back retros of older releases with minor changes. Create new collabs and new  GR colorways and that's it. In my opinion, the sneaker scene changed a lot in the last couple years. Fashion trends these days are somehow strange. Everyone will find something for themselves. For me, it's hard to predict what could be the most hyped because I'm not really following fashion trends, but it seriously looks like everybody's going to wear „Dad's shoes”
