Dan Richmond | Sneaker Fanatic Q&A


There’s just over 24 hours to go until one of the biggest sneaker events in the UK, Crepe City! In celebration we have decided to catch up with a good friend of  the blog and all round nice guy, Dan Richmond who will be setting up stall at the event.

Our friend Dan is a self proclaimed sneaker fanatic who has been collecting since the era of “Boy In Da Corner”, a time when Air Force 1’s and Bapesta’s where the thing. This guy has been lucky enough to turn his obsession in a full time career and so we have decided to fire over our iLLSession Questions, enjoy…
