June 7, 2023

Carlo @carlo.stpeter is an avid enthusiast of streetwear and especially sneakers, and this all started with the Nike Air Max 90. He admires Virgil Abloh for designing exclusive designs that maintain the original standard for sneakers while also making a statement.

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

I enjoy streetwear, and one of the things I've seen in a basic streetwear outfit is sneakers.

My love of sneakers began with the purchase of my first pair, a Nike Air Max 90.

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

Jordan 1 speaks to me because it is flexible, classic, and timeless.

This trend in sneaker culture history resonates with me, especially my personality, because I like to keep my style the same way I describe Jordan 1.

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

My current sneakers rotation includes Nike Dunks, Jordan 1, Yeezy, and Nike Sacai.

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

It's exciting and satisfying for me since I always get the impression that I've finally gotten my dream pair and can match it with my fit.

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

I'm hoping for a Nike Dunk Low x Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh sneaker collaboration.

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

Virgil Abloh is one of my favorite designers because his designs are one-of-a-kind while still making a statement and elevating the sneaker's original standard.

What is your ultimate holy grail sneaker that you have not acquired so far?

My greatest holy grail sneaker that I have yet to purchase is J1's Travis Scott.

I'm a J1 fan, and I think this collaboration is by far the best.

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

Aside from sneakers, my most loved things include headgear (caps and beanies.)

Where can people find you on social media?
