The sneaker-collecting craze started back in the 1970s as part of New York City’s
hip-hop and b-boy movement. Generations later, this community of next-level shoe fanatics can be found across the world, including in Southeast Asia. We meet the individuals contributing to this global movement.
Less is more with Perry Kuan. This 18-year-old student and entrepreneur believes the best way to show off your cool kicks is by sticking with the simple, timeless classics: Trucker jacket, basic tee, plain socks and low-top sneakers.
To Edmond, sneakers are his blank canvas. He describes his style as “low-key” and “occasionally bold”, preferring to pin-roll his jeans to allow his patterned socks to peek out over high-top sneakers.
Andy’s motto? Streetwear never dies. High-top sneakers and rolled up jeans are his go-to denim-sneaker combo, and if given the choice between patterned and plain socks, he’d go for plain every time.
As the owner of Multiconcept Fashion Store, Hidden Bar and CFTM Motorcycle Spare Parts Trading, Blanco is a man of many hats. Inspired by streetwear style, his favourite denim-sneaker pairing involves distressed slim fit jeans with low-top sneakers and low-cut plain socks.
See how the rest of Southeast Asia are upping their denim-and-sneaker game.

Like the Hi-Ball, the Lo-Ball Stack is built for maximum sneaker visibility. Only rather than cuffed and cropped, the Lo-Ball has an elongated inseam that creates a sneaker-friendly stacking above the hem.
