Sneaker Watch recently posted their full exclusive interview with Allen Kuo — the 20-year-old who stealthily managed to get his hands on 100 pairs of the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost “Light Grey/Gum” before they even released. In the 17-minute clip above, Kuo discusses his inception into the sneaker game, his ambitious undertaking of opening up a store, and unsurprisingly confesses that he isn’t even a sneakerhead — presumably having amassed a collection of Air Jordans and Yeezys that he doesn’t even wear, but rather resells for profit.

Check out the entire interview above and let us know your thoughts.
