Interview Yo, the UltraBOOST Collector
The general concept of ‘shoe collecting’ is to put them at a certain place for display, but for me, I would absolutely wear them.


Yo, the UltraBOOST collector from our editorial department, is going to share some thought about his UltraBOOST Collection.




“Perhaps I’m not the kind of ‘collector’ that people think I am. The general concept of ‘shoe collecting’ is to put them at a certain place for display, but for me, I would absolutely wear them. As for whether to collect old classic models or new ones, I would say the new models are definitely more meaningful to me.”




“The reason is pretty simple. I ‘m young. I didn’t experience the era when the sport stars are historical, nor do I had interest in those sports, so I don’t have much feelings for these ‘old models’. In this situation collecting their sneakers are more about the value of the item than the item itself. I feel like collecting based on monetary value is boring and meaningless.”



“However, collecting ‘new models’ is so different. Gimmicks aside, footwear is just something you put on your feet. I tend to focus more on the design, textile, and technology behind the shoe rather than who signed them or who’ve worn them.  Also because I’m in related industry so I get aesthetic fatigue when I’ve seen too much. That’s why it’s so eye catching when some new sneakers just appeared, and they would absolutely impress me more than the ‘old models’.”




In fact, Yo wears joint models or crossovers only on important occasions. He has changed pairs of normal models of UltraBOOST. The black and white pair that he’s wearing today is his new recent favorite.




“I bought this pair soon as I saw them, and they’re the handover of the 3.0 version that I’ve been wearing for a year. The BOOST technology combined with the midsole from Continental Rubber made it comfortable as always. The black upper embellished with the three stripes Adidas motif formed a visual contrast and it’s a good pick for styling.”
