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

The first moment I got drawn to sneakers was when I walked into my older cousins closet and saw all his sneakers in clear cases stacked on top of each other, all freshly cleaned all organized by brand. I knew it wasn't an obsession but a passion!

My first sneakers that triggered my passion was a very basic shoe but it would have to be Nike Air Max 97. I saw It on an Instagram post and I wanted an orange pair! I bought them and I've only worn them once because I don't want to mess them up.

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

A trend that resonated with me was when everyone was wear bulky sneakers and it was the dad sneaker trend. I really liked that because that was my first time where I mixed street style and nice glamorous dresses together, and it made a really nice combination.

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

A little scary I don't want to mess them up, but excited because my cousins always compliment my shoes when I get new sneakers.

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

I've never had a pair of Yeezy's, but I just like how different and unique they are. And when people see them, they already know it's Yeezy.

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

That's hard. I want to see AOC have a collaboration with Nike or one of my fav Reggaeton artist.

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

Stan smiths, Cortez's, and my Nike react.

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

Yeezys! I don't know why I can never get a pair.

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

Another daily essential would be a good cup of coffee, or matcha my planner, my computer, a face wash.
