KICKZ PICKZ – Monaco Edition

In this new series we go to visit our stores across Germany to introduce you to their staff and ask them about their favorite items from the current collections. We start off in our home base Munich. KICKZ Monaco was the first KICKZ store to ever open its doors back in 1993. This is where it all started more than 20 years ago. If you’re wondering, Monaco is the Italian name for Munich. So if you wanna pay Sven and his crew a visit, please don’t go to Monte Carlo.

In 2004, the store received a complete makeover. Since then, it features the innovative high gloss black shoe wall which gives customers a real-time overview of the sneaker’s name, price and available sizes. In the beginning, the store was was just named KICKZ and after that, from 2005, KICKZ tier.zero. KICKZ Monaco got its current name in 2009. But enough about history, let’s meet 2 members of the crew, Jess and Joel.

About the author

Martin joined KICKZ in 2013, the year of its 20th anniversary. Starting out on a small side job he’s been sucked deeper and deeper into the Kickz.com universe ever since. Also known as “Doc Martin” or “The Professor”, he’s a real smartass who drives his colleagues nuts on a regular basis. His wisdom is as magnificent as his beard, which makes James Harden look like an infant. And he’s also very humble.
Surprisingly, his favorite basketball player is not Dr. J but Penny Hardaway. Likewise, his favorite team of all time is the 1994-95 Orlando Magic squad who beat the Bulls in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. When it comes to sneakers, it’s retro runners all the way. New Balance, Adidas, Puma, Asics … you name it. It’s safe to assume that there’s a connection between his love for 90s shoes and 90s basketball.
