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

My first sneakers were Jordan 3 Retros. I liked how different they were and I didn't know anyone who had them yet!

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

I like how bright colors and quirky patterns have become a large part of sneaker culture - these are seen a lot more now in sneaker and artist collabs which is so sick! I remember when everyone only ever wore white chunky sneakers, so it's nice to see people getting a bit more creative these days with their fits!

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

Best feeling in the world!! Confidence goes way up haha

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

Drew House - Love JB and the bright colors and designs he uses. FOG is a classic, simple staples for everyone. I also love KAWS because I love the little figures and how different their designs are. I'm definitely gravitate towards things that stand out!

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

It would be so sick to see a Drew Store x Nike Jordans collab.

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

The Panda Dunks are a staple, Jordan 3 Retro laser orange are still my favorites, New Balance 550 Oreo, Grey Fog Jordan 1 Mid!

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

Imran Potato x Vans would be so sick!

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

Definitely some chunky jewelry, an over the shoulder bag and sunnies are all essential for creating cohesive fits!

Where people can find you on social media?
