Meet DJ Big Boy Cheng.
He has a massive sneaker collection. He says he owns around 900 pairs including some Jordans, Nikes, and adidas designs that even have their own room in his home, complete with centralized air conditioner and humidifier. Truth be told, it’s probably bigger than your tiny apartment.
The 40-year-old sneakerhead’s fascination with sneakers started during his elementary years, a hobby that was influenced by his older sister.
“Bata pa ako mahilig na ako sa sneakers dahil sa kapatid kong babae," he recalls. “Bumibili siya lagi pag pumupuntang Hong Kong tulad ng Converse and Diadora, so from there nag ka-interest ako.”
“Minsan hinihiram ko sa kanya. Natatawa pa nga mga tao saken kasi high school siya tapos grade school ako. Ang laki sa paa ko pero pinipiliit ko pa din suotin."
“Talagang bumabyahe kami ng anak ko tapos nakalista na sneakers na bibilhan namin at kung anong store papasukan namin,” he shares, a glint of excitement in his eyes.
Some stores, he adds, even reach out to him when there are new pairs and limited edition releases.
Cheng recently welcomed FHM into his walk-in sneaker closet to show off his impressive collection, specifically the most expensive ones.
