Dinner with Markus Thaler

Today has been a collector's dream come true.
After listening to an interesting talk with Markus Thaler at the Kosaten 
exhibition venue, we had the pleasure to join him for Dinner and spend 
some more time with the design legend. The charismatic Franconian has 
been with adidas for over 40 years and is mostly known for his ZX designs. 
He surely had some great storys to tell …

Meeting Stan Smith

Yesterday we had the chance for a short talk with Stan the man.
The other collectors and I were privileged to spend a few private minutes 

with the tennis legend after his appearance at the exhibition venue and 
had some great laughs together.

KOSATEN - The Opening

After days of very little sleep and lots of preparations for the KOSATEN 
exhibition, we finally got to reap the fruits of our labor and enjoy the 
opening last night. 
My personal highlight of the evening was chatting with adidas Designer Markus 
Thaler (mostly known for his work on the ZX series) about his favorite exhibition 
pieces, difficulties in the production process of cetain models in the 80's and
personal stories about jet-set life. What a night! 
Thank you adidas originals and Empire Entertainment for this memorable 
eveningI had a ton of fun!

We finally arrived in Japan and I am already in love with Tokyo!
What an amazing city! I can't get over adoring the level of organization here!
After spending all day yesterday sorting and repacking our sneaker
for the exhibition, today we will start displaying.
