Interviews

Keely Arts @keely.arts is a fashion enthusiast as well as a sneaker head. The brand that made her fall in love with sneakers is Fila’s. Jordan 1 Atmosphere Pink, Yeezy Boost 700 Bright Blue, Jordan 4 Lightning, and Puma Cruise Rider in grey are some of the pairs in her current collection.

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

I’ve always liked fashion, and I have always admired how a nice pair of shoes can complete an outfit. Sneakers became a real passion when I got my first job and were actually able to buy them, as we’d never been able to afford stuff like that growing up. I think the first pair that triggered my passion was Fila’s.

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