An Editor at Hypebeast, it’s nailed on that Jack Stanley is clued up on his streetwear, and we’ve been lucky enough to have him share his footwear rotation with us.
Take a look below; you won’t be disappointed.
“I’ve always been reticent to talk about my footwear as a collection. To me, that brings to mind the idea of keeping them all boxed away in pristine condition, but I’ve always worn as many pairs as I can.
“My recent lockdown rotation has been pretty New Balance-heavy – grey 990 v5s are my go-to – but I’ve also been wearing the brand’s recent collabs with Aimé Leon Dore and Casablanca to add a bit of colour.
“Other than that, I’ve got a pair of Salomon S/Lab XT-6 that I wear for my government-mandated exercise and some cosy Birkenstock Bostons for my around-the-house wear.”
Paria Farzaneh x Converse F&F One Star
“Paria is one of the best-emerging designers in the world right now, and these custom Converse One Stars are easily one of my favourite pairs.”
Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 990v5
“I got these last year and I’ve worn them pretty much constantly ever since. I’m a big fan of the muted colourway and any New Balance 990 is pretty much perfect to me.”
Slam Jam x Nike Blazer “Class of 1977″
“I’m a big fan of the upside-down Swoosh, it’s a really simple touch, but I love it. I’ve absolutely worn these Slam Jam x Nike Blazerto death, but they’re a trusty go-to whenever I’m not sure what to wear.”
“It’s my favourite ever shoe. Not really much more to say.”
“I’ve always been a big magazine fan and I wouldn’t be doing the job I’m doing now if it wasn’t for the magazines I bought when I was a kid [starting with the official Liverpool supporters one].
“I think its really important for any writer to read as much as possible, and my magazine collection has been a constant source of inspiration for me when I’ve been thinking about what I want to write and produce.”
Frank Ocean ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ zine
“Easily my favourite magazine that I own is Frank Ocean’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. I remember queuing up outside Charlotte Street News at midnight on the night that Blonde released to get my copy, complete with its slightly different version of the album.”
