98 Facts for Snipes

For the latest Snipes Mag I have worked on an interesting feature – a collection of altogether 98 facts about hiphop, sports, style and much more from the year 1998.

So, what were you up to in ’98?! That year I went to my second Roskilde Festival, did an interview with Richie Hawtin and wore those strange climbing sneakers from the “Adventure EQT” series that I’m pretty sure will never be retro’ed by Adidas.

That year also saw the opening of the first Snipes store. Two decades on and Snipes is one of the biggest players in the European sneaker and streetwear game. As part of the anniversary of the brand, I’ve done a special feature for their printed Snipes Mag:

98 facts from hiphop and R&B, basketball and tennis or sneakers and streetwear, in two parts with 49 short blurbs each. Party 1 is now up for a read in issue #38 (only in German though) and features Falco, the Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Destiny’s Child and the Air Max 98.
