How did we find Mathias?

Portrait of Mathias

“As I grew up, sneaker culture became very big in Denmark, especially the reselling and collecting side of it. This was new for me – being 16, having to spend two or three thousand DKK on a pair of shoes that originally cost a thousand. It was kind of difficult at first to explain to your parents – where’s all my money going? Well, it’s going to these shoes that no one else has.”


We certainly should have come better prepared to the interview with Mathias – not with more questions; the conversation with our awesome photographer was flowing so well we were sad to cut it short! No, in terms of our shoes, since Mathias made us really interested in a topic we would not have guessed would ever catch our eye – sneakers! What’s so interesting about them? Listen to Mathias and his episode of Humans of SDU and find out!
