Hi KLEKT, my name is Matteo (@teolombards) I’m from Italy and I’m a sneaker collector. Here’s my top 5:
Nike x Travis Scott Air Force 1 Low White (2017)
As a lover of the classic white Air Force 1, this was the collaboration that gave me the desire to collect limited sneakers. It’s a simple shoe, full of details, with interchangeable Swooshes that allow you to customize them as you like.
Air Jordan 4 Fire Red (2020)
Even if every collector’s dream is the Jordan 1 Chicago, for me the sneaker of excellence is the Jordan 4 Fire Red due to its shape, which I prefer to the classic Jordan 1. It’s more detailed but historical at the same time, an iconic model that keeps the Chicago colourway. I think it’s the pair that every collector should own.
Nike SB x Travis Scott Dunk Low Cactus Jack (2020)
This SB Dunk represents the union between my favourite sneaker’s silhouette, the collaboration I am most fond of and my passion for skateboarding. It’s the most beautiful shoe I own, comfortable and suitable for any season. It’s characterized by a perfect combination of colours and rope-style laces, that give a particular vintage touch.
Air Jordan X Union 4 Retro Off Noir (2020)
I love the high-quality materials on these Jordan 4s, the most beautiful over the last few years. Unlike many others, I have loved this pair since the first pictures I saw. The sewn label details are very nice, I’ll never unstitch them because they are what differentiates them from the other Jordan 4s, If they were conceived and designed in this way, they should be worn like this.
Nike SB Dunk Low Street Hawker (2021)
I’ve always been fascinated by Chinese food culture and different coloured shoes. These are the elements that characterize this shoe and give me the idea of a pair that only a few people can wear, because of their particularity and difficulty in matching them to the outfit. I just don’t match them, I wear them regardless of my outfit.
