    WHEN DOES THE JERRY SEINFELD SHOX COLLAB DROP?

    WHEN DOES THE JERRY SEINFELD SHOX COLLAB DROP?

    It’s SNKRS Day and Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) and Meg Parry (@MegTeksir) are back recording the latest episode of UK6 Podcast. This episode, the girls catch up to discuss TV show/movie themed sneaker collaborations, specifically the most recent Spongebob and Stranger Things partnerships. Although they don’t necessarily agree on some of these, they have decided that it’s about time for the Jerry Seinfeld Nike collab to drop.

    Alex and Meg also discuss their musings on the Bobby Hundreds Book, ‘This Is Not A T-Shirt’, which they are both feeling inspired by. The girls also recap their visit to the Archive DNA Pop Up at Selfridges in London, which is on until 14th August (ICYMI, check out to our interview with Magdi Fernandes, the founder, on Episode 8).

    GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT with MAGDI FERNANDES

    GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT with MAGDI FERNANDES

    With London Fashion Week Mens rapidly approaching, Meg Parry (@Megteksir) and Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) sit down to discuss the in’s and out’s of the industry, leading up to Alex’s debut catwalk show this weekend for her label Studio ALCH. The girls discuss the new FENTY range and how they feel about the sub-categories (Fenty-Puma, Fenty-Beauty etc.) and the — perhaps wavering — influence of the influencer, in light of Hypebeast releasing the Streetwear Impact Report.


    We’re also joined by our latest guest — legendary sneaker collector, photographer, DJ, founder of the iconic Slammin’ Kicks store and of course, the person behind the infamous @Archive.DNA account — Magdi Fernandes. We discuss the Art of Collecting, the joy of Carboot Sales (and finding money in used clothes) and how Magdi’s mum is basically the OG reseller. Also, if you want to hear a wild story about buying kicks from Footlocker for 1p, this is the episode for YOU.

    OFCOURSE I KNOW NAKED! with VONI ROBI

    OFCOURSE I KNOW NAKED! with VONI ROBI

    This month Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) and Meg Parry (@MegTeksir) attended Sneakerness, Meg went to Off-Print and Alex did the Hackney 5K (Half-Marathon Up Next!). The girls discuss the idea of cultivating and creating IRL community through events such as these and give a lengthy review on Sneaker Freaker’s new book (Spoiler Alert: it’s amazing).

    This episode, we’re also joined by a special guest — former social media manager of Naked Copenhagen and current social editor for The Face Magazine — Voni Robi. We discuss following your career literally around the world, how important it is to be nice to everyone you meet, the very unglamorous sides of the industry, and generally just what it’s like having a career in social media outside of being an “influencer”. Plot Twist: we all decide that if someone’s not active on social media, it’s a good sign that they’re probably actually just too busy living their best life!

    JUST TWO GIRLS TRYING TO MAKE IT IN THE INDUSTRY

    They’ve been on a brief hiatus, but Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) and Meg Parry (@MegTeksir) are back for Episode 6 of UK6. In this episode, the girls discuss Beyonce joining Team Adidas, the reality versus perception of your “dream job” within the industry, our favourite Bobby Hundreds quote, and Alex’s obsession with visiting the Nike store in every city she visits.

    No guests this episode, but best believe we have some exciting ones lined up to join the podcast this month!

    AIR MAX DAY 2019 SPECIAL with 18MONTROSE

    It’s Air Max Day 2019 — our favourite unofficial holiday — and Meg Parry (@MegTeksir) and Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) are back with a special anniversary special! Would you expect anything less?

    This episode features a live recording straight from the 18Montrose Talks Air Max event on Saturday 23rd March, featuring 3 very special guests — Steve Bryden, Deb Bailey and Geoffrey Lam. We discuss digital hype, initiatives like On Air, celebrity versus community collaborations, the pros and cons of hybrid models and of course, the elephant in the room, the resell industry. We also talk about the future of Air Max, and why Steve never wants to see a Kylie Minogue Air Max.

    ARE WE ACTUALLY JUST HOARDERS? with ALEX POWIS

    ARE WE ACTUALLY JUST HOARDERS? with ALEX POWIS

    This month Meg Parry (@MegTeksir) and Alex Hackett (@Miniswoosh) sit down to discuss a listener comment/question from @paige.infull who asked about our advice for anyone trying to get into the industry and how you can grow your portfolio without having a degree. Alex also drops a hint about something dropping on Nike.com on the 5th of March.

    We’re also joined by our third guest — founder and editor of The Daily Street and Editor in Chief of Crepe City magazine — Alex Powis, perhaps better known as Alex Synamatix (@synamatix). We discuss the fine line between “collecting” and just plain hoarding, the dilemma of To Share or Not To Share with regards to original content on Instagram, and how inconvenient those limited release, “special” odd-shaped trainer boxes are when it comes to stacking. We also delve into the importance of mentorship and passion projects, discussing Alex’s side projects — #SensorReplicationStudies and @stickerarchive — and our new favourite Nike archive instagram, @archive.DNA (FKA @nike.DNA).
