A Sneaker Story “The Sneakers That Never Left” | Alexis Wang

We first interview Alexis Wang a few weeks back to speak with her about a very special pair of Air Force 1s with which she wore to find her now boyfriend. Now, we take you to something a bit more peculiar, the sneaker ‘twilight zone’ one might say in some respects.

After losing this pair of all black Converse Chuck Taylors for several years, Alexis found them in the corner of her school’s playground in her hometown of Xian, china. It seems a bit weird, but the shoes were untouched and looked almost new even in the face of some pretty bad storms – thank god they were all black. Every sneaker has a story, but it is interesting to point out here that this sneaker story is more of a journey.
