It’s been just 5 months since we last spoke to Sneaker Hunter, but we know his business has grown massively so we decided to catch up with him and check out what’s changed and of course throw our iLL sessions Q&A his way (we know you love reading them, you guys are nosey ;)).
If you didn’t read the last POST, Sneaker Hunter does exactly what he says on the tin, he hunts for sneakers. If you can’t find “that pair of Inneva’s” or “those Ben Drury’s” you’ve always wanted, he does the hard work for you!
Since we last spoke to him, he’s been travelling up and down the country, meeting like minded sneaker heads and buying fresh kicks for his WEBSITE. He means serious business as well, picking up 46 pairs of sneakers on one of his trips, that’s more than some people have in their collection! His most expensive pick up to date are his DS Kidrobot AM1 (very nice)!
His favourite pick up, believe it or not, are the 1991 Huarache that I asked him to find for my diddy size 4.5 feet, “My favourite pick up and also one that I would never think I would manage, was the pair for you as it had a great story behind it really, I never thought I would even find a pair in that condition let alone in your size“!
I myself am particularly surprised to see the Inneva Night Stadium Fall 2013 samples on his website, I haven’t seen these anywhere else yet.
So it’s safe to say business is good for SneakerHunter, filling his time finding sneakers for you guys and we decided to take up a little bit more of his time with our iLL sessions Q&A, enjoy and check his socials: INSTA, FACEY B, TUMBLR, TWITTER.
