Q. Your favorite shopping city? 

GMAN: Tokyo

Q. Your favorite store? 
GMAN: Beams, Dover St Market, Opening Ceremony, Roden Gray and Livestock (I’m biased)

Q. Your first sneaker memory growing up?
GMAN: I guess it would be travelling to San Diego before sneakers were really a thing and finding this dope hole in the wall shop that had found super rare vintage sneakers from old warehouses. They were all very reasonable prices, and they had the craziest colors of the illest styles. Wearing these back home and having people flip on the colorways, pretty much started me up

Q. What brands are you wearing these days?
GMAN: I like to rep the products that I distribute and support. Other than those I’m digging Brain Dead, Powers, Taikan Everything & OAMC

Q. What are you currently reading?
GMAN: I have allot of books on the go, but just bought this book called Tools Of Titans by Tim Ferris. He’s my favourite Podcast and the book pretty much re-cap's his 200+ interviews of world class performers.

Q. Which music artists you feeling as of late?
GMAN: I love ALL types of music, but owning a nightclub keeps me up on it which is nice. I keep a pretty open mind and my current Spotify playlist would include everything from Jamie xx, ATCQ, The Smiths, Bad Brains, Badbadnotgood, Kaytranda, Ugly God, Barrington Levy, Sam Gelliatry, Frank Ocean, Gucci, Stevie Wonder etc. I could go on. (Feel free to grab any Spotify playlists from Garret GMAN).

Q. Where’s your next travel to?
GMAN: Probably going to be some sort of work meeting or trade-show lol. Bucket lists within the new 5 years would be an Africa Safari or Galapagos Island.

Q. What does a perfect start to your day look like?
GMAN: Usually try to sit still for 20 minutes (or meditate), make a smoothie, catch up on some blog news and emails in the morning, listen to a podcast on the way to work.
