ANDREA
High school student and sneakers reseller

Have you noticed how, on Thursdays, certain streets in Haut Marais, around rue Barbette, resemble an episode of the comedy Sneakerheads, the series which tells the story of the world of sneaker collectors?

Because Thursday is “drops” (restocking) day for fans of hip-hop and skateboard culture who frequent the Supreme store, a high-end streetwear brand renowned for its rarity marketing, and its collaborations with Louis Vuitton, Timberland, Lacoste and even North Face.

That Thursday, therefore, we came across a trendy young man, with a youthful and determined appearance. Andrea told us that she is a “sneaker reseller”, that is to say a sneaker trader, who buys the most popular pairs of sneakers of the moment to resell them.

In this very competitive environment, this type of super-salesman enjoys great success due to the imbalance in the market: demand is more abundant than supply.

But that day, the young trader, not having had the chance to have his entry ticket to access the sale, was waiting for a "proxi", in other words the intermediary who buys for those who cannot enter the store.

Andréa told us about her biggest dream: to become a professional golfer like Brooks Koepka. Wearing obviously crazy sneakers, of course!

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
