CroatianStyle, possibly one of the OGs in the aftermarket sneaker selling game, was in Singapore this week. We got his perspective on all things sneakers.
“I like the fact that sneakers are now like a household thing. It’s not so much a niche type of situation anymore” – CroatianStyle
CroatianStyle – also known as Andre Ljustina – the sneaker and streetwear collector and seller was in Singapore over New Year’s flaunting his latest big-money purchase from Louis Vuitton Singapore on his Instagram (@croatianstyle) – the final piece of the Supreme x LV trunk and skate deck and carrier.
The Los Angeles based sneaker enthusiast has earned himself quite a reputation from his days reselling sneakers on eBay in the early 2000s. Since setting up his online store Project Blitz, Andre has focused less of his attention on eBay. His access to hot wares means Jay Z, Drake and the Jenner sisters are now part of his clientele, and that keeps him busy.
Anyway, you get the picture – Andre is everything his Instagram account says he is; a flashy guy surrounded by beautiful people, places and things, who turns out to be extremely personable, as we found out through the course of our conversation with him.
Watch our full interview with Andre, who talks sneaker culture as it was then and now, his favorite sneaker collabs of 2017, and which sneaker he would keep if he had to get rid of them all save for one.
Special thanks to Fahim without whom this interview couldn’t have been possible. Of course, the guy happens to also be giant Supreme collector whom we’ve profiled here.
