From the ground up

Next up in our Sneaker Rotation series is Dimas Indro, co-founder of Maris Store – a premium streetwear shop located in Jakarta, Indonesia which opened two and a half years ago.

“I’ve been collecting sneakers since I was 14 years old and quit when I was 19, then continued again when I was 22 years old because of my two other Maris Store partners Putra and Angelo. For me, collecting sneakers is a thing that brought me into the scene and I have a real passion for both sneakers and retail.

Dressing from bottom to top is what I do everyday before I go anywhere. And because it’s a hobby to collect sneakers, Maris Store brought back the streetwear scene here in Indonesia. I’m also creative director of a sneaker event called Sneaker Garage by Maris Store that’s held once every four months. All the things that I do are exactly the things I love.”

adidas x Solebox Ultraboost

“I’m not actually a big fan of the Ultra Boost, but when these first appeared on the internet it just blew my mind because of the uncaged design. Really nice colorway and also a humble Solebox logo on the back.”

fragment design x Nike Bruin

“fragment design is one of my favorite brands and when someone hooked me with this sample pair, my first thought was to keep it on ice until its release.”

Nike Air Presto “Geneology Pack”

“Being a big fan of the Presto when I was a kid, I was really surprised when it made a comeback. The colorway just can’t get any better than this. This pair is my one of my favorites from my collection.”

Nike Air Max LD-Zero H

“There is nothing much to say about this shoe except that Hiroshi did a dope job on these.”

Nike Air Footscape Magista

“Nike did a really great job on this shoe. A super nice upper material combined with a Footscape midsole that makes it so comfortable. Also, a little bit of a gum sole makes it look perfect. It took eight months to get this shoe, so this is my absolute favorite pair of my entire collection.”

Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit

“The mid-cut design with a breathable upper material is just great for the weather here in Jakarta and it’s a very nice colorway to match my everyday style, so obviously this is my daily shoe.”

Nike Free Inneva Woven NRG

“For me personally I always like when Nike comes out with black and charcoal colorways. This one features a leather insole so it feels really good on foot. This was the best shoe released in 2012 for me.”
