Name? Helder Borges
Role at Glue Store? General Manager - Brands
How many pairs of Sneakers do you own? About 300!
What is your favourite pair? The Adidas x Stan Smith Sneaker
What do you look for in a pair of Sneakers and what makes a good pair? Time, I’m a bit of an old school nut so I love heritage classics, Puma Suede, Adidas Gazelles, Onitsuka Tiger Vintage Corsair so any real 1to1 releases really get me going. I also love to see old styles being brought back to life with a bit of fresh tech in them.
3 pairs of Sneakers everybody should own? You should have a pair of Old School Courts, Converse High Tops, A box fresh pair of clean white Adidas Stan Smith and a light weight Racer from Asics to travel in for hyper speed.
The one pair that got away? The Nike Huarache Tipple black
