Obscura Magazine – INFLUENCES: My Favourite Sports Brands

By - April 29th, 2014

From editorial desk of Obscura Magazine, INFLUENCES: My Favourite Sports Brands is an online memoir of one’s love for everything sneakers. Rather than a personal ode to just sneakers, writer/stylist Cheng Chi Lung penned a passionate narrative from the first issue of Runner’s World magazine and a pair of CONVERSE Chuck Taylor All Star that started the trend, to long forgotten brands and Japanese sneaker publications which further sneakers’ status as collectables. Paired with photographs by Chan Kin Wai and Decue’s pencil sketches, Cheng added other poignant yet lesser-known influences such as the late Steve Jobs’ preferences for New Balance and the Reebok Alien Stompers fashioned by character Ellen Ripley in Aliens.
