ICONIST: What sneakers have you bought recently?

Fischer: I buy all over the place. Most recently, the Nike MK-2 tennis Shoe in White, with an orange Hit on the heel. A black Vans Slip-on! Usually I buy things that are not necessarily hip: Margiela Military, quite simply in White with a Gum sole. A beige Chuck Taylor. Often I get these collaborations, which are also cool. But what is deep in me: If too many people have something, then I don’t want to do it anymore. I put on the simplest things, because everyone else is wearing just the hottest Shit.

ICONIST: What is it that makes today a sneakers important and hot?
