If you have a passion for collecting rare or exclusive footwear, you're probably all too familiar with catching yourself developing some strong emotional ties for certain pairs from your collection.

In the monthly Kickin' the Door Blog series, we welcome fellow Rotterdam-based sneaker aficionados and footwear connoisseurs to share the Top 3 sneakers from their collection and let us in on the stories that make them so unique. 


For the 30th edition of the Kickin’ the Door series, we are joined by Jan-Willem.



We are curious - What are Jan-Willem's Top 3 sneakers from his collection and more importantly, what are the stories behind them?


#3 Reebok x Vetements Spike Runner 200 'Grey Red'

(Released in 2019)

Love the 80s vibes that these give off, the colors are very out there.




#2 Salomon XT-6 GTX W 'Black/Ebony/Lunar Rock'

(Released in 2022)

Really appreciate the fact that they're Gore-Tex. Makes me feel like I can take on any challenge.




#1 Nike Air Max 95 'Wheat'

(Released in 2015)

In love with the Air Max 95 silhouette, and this colorway is just the best.
