And just like that we are back again for another instalment of 5Q’s 5A’s, where we sit down and chat to one of our Team KLEKT members. This week we had the pleasure of talking to longtime French sneaker and streetwear enthusiast @cedric_castex, discussing everything from his favourite sneaker brands to his all-time holy grail shoes.
Cedric will also be running a special promo on his account over the weekend, so make sure you follow him to get in on the action. Without further delay, this is 5Qs and 5As with @cedric_castex!
Hi, it’s great to have you here. Please introduce yourself!
Hi there, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of this series!
My name is Cedric, I’m 34 years old and I work for Galeries Lafayette, Paris on the men’s shoes section.
What’s on your feet right now?
Today I am wearing the Air Max 1 Dark Grey Fierce Purple Black, they dropped in 2018 but are the perfect everyday sneaker, subtle enough for work whilst showing off my passion for sneakers. In my opinion the AM1 are the perfect work silhouette.
You have such a wide variety of sneakers in your collection! Do you have a favourite brand?
My collection does not stop at a single brand. I tend to go with how I am feeling when it comes to sneakers looking at the materials, colour and honestly it mostly depends on what I win on raffle, haha. My collection is mostly dominated by Nike/Jordan, the AM1 AJ1 are icons in the sneakers culture. They drop all the time with some crazy pairs and collabs getting me to try raffles 1 or 2 time a week on the SNKRS app.
Do you have any grail-worthy shoes in your collection?
I’ve got two grails in my collection. The Air Max 1 Chlorophyll and the most recent Travis Scott x fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High.
What are your 5 all-time favourites in your collection?
