Lifetime Doylestown resident Shael Fisher owns more than 250 pairs of sneakers, many still in their original boxes, dating back to ’87. But these aren’t just any ol’ tennis shoes — they’re a collection of limited editions, originals and throwbacks that give him the well-deserved epithet (and accompanying cult status) of sneakerhead. Last spring he turned his passion into a business with the opening of sneaker boutique Estetiks, where a rotating stock of Nikes (with nicknames like “Old Spice”), special-release Vans and these Bathing Ape Japanese kicks ($220) are not only statement-making fashion accessories, but mini works of art. And sometimes, chuckle-worthy reminders of fashion fads of the past: reissues of the neon Nikes that Agassi made famous in his long-hair days, Air Max Tailwinds from ’92, and the original Air Jordans. 5 South Main Street, Doylestown, 215-348-5457, estetiksonline.com.
