What’s one moment or trend in the history of sneaker culture that resonates with you?

When former basketball player Michael Jordan made a deal with Nike and came up with Air Jordan, it probably became one of my favorite shoes to this day.

What are some of the current pairs of sneakers in your rotation?

Air Force, Blazer, and Jordan.

Please describe how it feels when you get and wear a new pair of kicks?

To me, when you wear your favorite pair of kicks, it shows your style, and I like that I can express myself through the pair of kicks I wear.

What is one sneaker collaboration that doesn’t exist, but you wish/think should exist?

Nike x Dr Woo. He is a well-known tattoo artist whom I have been following for years. It will be interesting to see what comes up!

What are some of your favorite creators/designers or brands and why?

Yoon Ahn when she did the collaboration with Ambush and Nike. She is such a talented designer and all her creations are unique.

Jewelry and perfumes.
