-The Esquire 100 - Kicks TQ
How many pairs of sneakers do you own? It’s probably not as many as Tareq Q.
The Kuwait-based style influencer can count more than 600 pairs (300 of which are Jordans) in his collection. These are is his favourite...
Air Jordan 1 Bred
Michael Jordan’s first shoe in the colourway that got banned from the NBA. That story and design, make them my all-time favourite.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Turtle Dove
One of Kanye’s first Adidas shoes. In terms of design and technology, it pretty much changed the sneaker game.
Air Max 1 O.G. (Black and White)
This was Tinker Hatfield’s first shoe design with an air bubble. You cannot go wrong with this one.
Air Force 1 O.G.
So much history goes into this shoe, from its impact on streetwear culture to its importance in hip-hop culture.
Air Jordan 3 White Cement
The shoe that Jordan wore when he dunked from the free-throw line in 1988. The white and grey in the shoe make it super versatile with a variety of outfits.
Air Jordan 4 White Cement
My favourite Jordan silhouette. Period.
Adidas Ultra Boost 1.0 White
The Ultra Boost is still arguably the most comfortable sole in the sneaker game. This first versions of the model will go down in history.
Adidas Wave Runner 700
This is the Kanye West design that took the “dad shoe” trend to the next level.
Air Jordan 6 Infrared
Jordan’s shoe when he won his first championship. It’s a design that the basketball court wasn’t ready for.
