KICKZ PICKZ – Office Edition

Welcome to the second edition of our new series KICKZ PICKZ in which we introduce our staff’s favorite items from the current collections. Last time we paid a visit to KICKZ Monaco, our oldest store. This time around we stayed in our headquarter and talked to 4 members of the family who work in various departments in the office. Our home base is located in the heart of Munich, Germany, very close to the infamous Theresienwiese which hosts the annual Oktoberfest, or Wiesn as we call it here. This can be very convenient but also a bit annoying if you travel to and from work by subway. Anyway, let’s meet some of the faces behind KICKZ.COM! Right before christmas our staff picks are also perfect if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to spend your christmas money.

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.
