Interviews

Being a digital creator makes Tyra, @tyraryann started collecting sneakers because she feels it completes her whole look. Besides Jordan, she also loves Naked Wolfe, Bape - and any sneakers which come from the NBA collaboration!

What was the moment you first got drawn to sneakers, and which pair of sneakers triggered your passion?

I got drawn to sneakers when I first started getting into fashion. I just love how much more they can add to an outfit. My custom white Nike blazers triggered my passion.

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

I really love the sneakers that come from the NBA collaborations. That is probably the sneaker trend that resonates with me most.

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

I feel fresh but also cautious because I never want to dirty a new pair of shoes.

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

My favorite designs may be a little cliche, but I treasure the Jordan sneakers. My favorite brands would be Nike, Naked Wolfe, and Bape.

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

I would love to see Sausage Lord or Estelle Aliot do a sneaker collab with a high-end brand. That would be so cool because they are just style icons.

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

My Nike Air Forces are a wardrobe staple. My panda dupes as well!

What is your ultimate holy grail sneaker that you have not managed to acquire so far?

I would say any pair of sneakers from A Bathing Ape. I love them though I do not own a pair yet.

Other than kicks, what are some of your daily essentials or treasured items?

One thing that can make an outfit go from boring to wow is accessories, a bag, jewelry, and even glasses. My most treasured items are my diamanté Prada bag and all of my sunglasses from Giant Vintage.
