Sneaker Bistro Boutique
Name: Joe “Mr. Bistro”
Tell us a little about you and your position at the store: Well, I’m 33 years old, and I am the owner and manager of Sneaker Bistro. I’ve had a passion for sneakers since I was 16 years old, and it still continues.
What makes your store special? We were the first sneaker boutique in Long Island. I traveled to NYC often for kicks, but I wanted to bring that boutique feel to the Island. Our motto is: we serve our customers here with five-star Service.
Shoe that got you hooked: Even though I don’t really wear a lot of J’s anymore, the shoe that got me hooked was the Jordan Military 4’s back in ’89.
Last pair you purchased: My last purchase were the ’09 True Blue 3’s.?
Favorite pair you don?t own: They’d have to be the Kaws AF1.
Amount of pairs you own: Right now I own 250+ pairs. The stack doesn’t grow as much as it used to. Although we get limited kicks I’d normally cop, I rather see our clientele happy.
Top three of all-time: My top three are…
Stash AF1 High
Mark Smith Laser AF1 Low
Playstation AF1 Low
Which upcoming release are you looking forward to?: In March ’09, we released our first collabo sneaker with DC Life, so we are looking forward to our next one. Stay tuned.
If you weren’t a Shop Owner you would be: a Crane Operator.
One reason why shoes matter: It gives off a certain characteristic. From the color you wear to how clean you keep them.
One reason you love shoes: Personal identity.
One thing that you dislike about the shoe game: “Who’s got a better collection?”. Whether it’s a quickstrike or GR, wear what you like. Today’s GR is tomorrow’s retro, and kids don’t seem to understand that in the game today.
