Musa Lekatompessij, 33 years old, is originally from Leerdam and now lives in Rotterdam for almost 14 years. He is mostly known in Rotterdam for organizing the parties Niko. and the freshly launched Apollo 010:

Making sure for the night is filled with good vibes, adventures and a great mix of music-styles like HipHop, R&B, funky disco and even some UK garage!

 

But besides him participating and contributing to the Rotterdam nightlife; we also know the man got some kicks!
Playing basketball in Jordan's since he was young he developed his love for sneakers ever since.

 

We are curious; What is Musa his top 3 sneakers?

#3. NIKE AIR MAX 90 “INFRARED”

(Released in 2012)

 

This is a straight-up classic which, in my opinion, every sneakerfreaker should carry in their collection. It has such a big, cultural history. The combination of colours and materials are beautiful. And the Nike air max 90 is one of the comfiest air maxes.
I bought this pair after a long search, deadstock, at Marktplaats for €150,-

#2. NIKE AIR MAX 96

(Released in 2016)

 

I love this retro-look. The white and blue makes it a subtle colourway.  My feet match perfectly with this silhouette, which makes it the most comfortable pair I own.
I coincidentally came across this pair when the whole retro-wave was popping up a while back. But this silhouette you rarely saw on people’s feet, which made it only more attractive to me. So it was a must-have at the time and still is.

#1. NIKE AIR JORDAN 1 “OLD LOVE/NEW LOVE”

(Released in 2007)

 

For every person that loves basketball, this is a true gem. Growing up with basketball and Michael Jordan as my hero this pair reflects my love for the game.
These two pairs belong together. They came in a special packaging which already made my heart skipped a beat. There is also a special, foldable card in the box; I love those kinda extra’s and details.
It is the first pair of Jordan's I bought with my own money with which I did not play basketball. And retail was only €200,- which you cannot imagine anymore these days.

 


 

"This pair reflects my love for the game."
