When people first find out that I collect sneakers, they always ask me two questions.
1. How many do you own?
2. What is your favourite sneaker?
The first question is hard to answer as I have never counted. One thing to note though, is that I wear ALL my shoes, so they don’t just sit in a box collecting dust.
The second question is easy, the Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared”.
I was in high school when the shoe first came out, and several of my friends had them. I was never in a position to own a pair, so years later when they were re-released, I was finally able to buy a pair. To this day it is the only sneaker that I have bought numerous times and the only sneaker that I currently have more than one pair in my collection.
Whenever my friends have babies, they all receive an infant pair of Air Max 90 Infrareds as a gift. Go figure! You can never start them too young!
Sneakers trigger memories for me, and this shoe takes me back to a great time in my life.
If I had to pick only one sneaker to wear daily for the rest of my life, the choice would be simple, the Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared”.
