Mr. Timoshin, you made your fortune reselling sneakers. How many pairs of sneakers do you have? I have around 800 pairs of shoes. A lot of them are sent to me and I also get them cheaper when I buy them. I wear maybe five pairs on a regular basis. Shoes are part of my image and they are my passion.

What is your most valuable shoe? This is the first one I started reselling with, the Air Jordan 5 Shanghai. I bought three pairs back then, sold two for 300 euros each and one is still here in my apartment, in a box with a payment receipt. I wouldn't sell that for 100,000 euros either.
