Sneaker Story #21: More than a Sneakerhead.
adidas Equipment (since 1991): EQT Support 93/Berlin.
After showing you my latest 7 Sneaker Stories from a different angle for the past 7 days, I prepared a special family and friends (F&F) edition for you this time. For this F&F release, there was no doubt in my mind who my next guest will be. I am very pleased to introduce you to my buddy—@stefan.domrose, not merely a sneakerhead, but rather a talented photographer and a dedicated three-stripe apprentice. Enjoy your reading, 🌍 World!
Tony23: Why did you choose to showcase your adidas EQT Support 93/Berlin in this episode of the Sneaker Story?
Stefan: I chose the shoe because it’s part of history of both @adidas and the @bvg_weilwirdichlieben. No other brand has done anything like this before: giving its wearers a free travel ticket for the whole year. So, you could go by bus, by train or even by some ships in Berlin. And, that’s awesome! There is also another factor for me: After I moved from Mexico, I had been living in Berlin for 6 years. And, Berlin has become a part of me. My dad and his family are from Berlin. And, the EQT Support is a must-have piece as a Berliner at home.
Tony23: What made you become a sneakerhead?
Stefan: My dad is an adidas-loving guy. Since a boy, he has been telling me, ’Here are your adidas football cleats and let’s buy you some adidas shoes for running and handball, too.’ adidas is like a culture in my family. In 2014, I also started to work for the company. With this, I became even more involved with the product and started buying more sneakers. My first love was the ZX Flux and I had around 30 pairs. It was a shoe I could wear every day of a month in a different colorway. After this, I fell in love with Ultra Boosts and YEEZYs. I still remember how hard I tried to get the 750s. Unfortunately, I couldn’t buy one of those because every Berliner wanted to own a pair. After I bought my first YEEZY, I was like, ‘Ok, that’s what I want to have.’ This purchase made me shift my focus from normal shoes to limited sneakers.
Tony23: What does the brand with the three stripes mean to you in three words?
Stefan: Family, culture & concept.
