Flo's @floriantrinidad has been loving sneakers since a young age because her sneakerhead dad. Martine Ali, Yoon Ambush, and Miyako Bellizzi have inspired her to always give her best in everything!

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

Since I was young, my dad has given us sneakers from his trips abroad as his collection is really a fire too. He had a pair of Nike ACG Air Skarns that were iconic in my youth. I think that subconsciously has drawn me in fashion ever since.

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

I used to watch Michael Jordan's games when I was younger. I was exposed to basketball culture because of my dad and his work. I couldn't forget the moment how Air Jordans were truly iconic in the basketball era and street culture in the 90s - which I believe started the sneaker culture these days.

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

I feel powerful because buying a pair of sneakers has been my way of rewarding myself lately. I consider them a reflection of my hard work and the stress that comes with it. LOL.

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

I have a ton of favorite creators from different backgrounds and eras in fashion industry, which honestly is hard for me to answer. But some people who really inspire me are: Martine Ali, Yoon Ambush, and Miyako Bellizzi. They are empowering figures in fashion, and they inspire me to always giving my best.

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

A Nike x Flo Trinidad collab might be fire. LOL.

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

Right now, my favorites in the rotation are the Nike x Ambush Air Adjust Forces and the Nike x Stussy Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2s. And a special shoutout goes to my Nike P-6000s, which I wear almost every day.

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

That would be OG Cotton Candy Bapesta.

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

Accessories are a huge part of my style. So jewelry, for sure. And also a cool pair of shades.
