Meet the Man Behind the Ever-Growing Sneaker Culture of Okinawa, Japan | Open the Box



A few weeks back, we got the chance to visit Okinawa, Japan to check out the budding sneaker culture there. One sneaker enthusiast, Kris Drone, has taken it upon himself to organically enhance the sneaker scene in Okinawa. A USA military member on one of the busiest bases in the world, Drone has found a way to merge the Japanese locals and his fellow military family into one, big, unique scene through his sneaker shop, Get ‘Em Kicks, and an annual sneaker convention. View the video above to see our own George Kiel chop it up with Drone about the beginnings, demand and purpose of the ever-growing sneaker community in Okinawa.
