A sneakerhead is best defined as a “sneaker enthusiast” or someone who loves shoes, and Sartell High School has a bunch of them.

For week two of “Sneakerhead of the Week” we have a junior, Ethan Plumier, with his pair of Air Jordan 1 High OG “Shadow.” Arguably one of the most classic shoes of all time, the Jordan 1 is a legend in the sneakerhead world. It is a staple in modern culture influencing many other types of media. The Jordan 1 has an appeal that no other shoe has.

Plumier says the Jordan 1 is appealing for a couple of reasons, “You can wear them with pretty much anything. A classic silhouette. Like most people recognize the shoe and what it means.”

When asked what got him into sneakers, Ethan said,  “Obviously musicians can be seen as some of the largest influencers. Youtubers like Brad Hall and Bull1TRC and Jacques Slade are big influencers when it comes to sneakers and sneaker culture on the internet.”

Ethan also mentioned that his favorite colorway of the Air Jordan 1 would have to be the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White University Blue. He states, “But only with the orange laces.” Ethan’s dream sneakers are also the Air Jordan Retro High Off-White University Blue.
