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

I’m interested in sneaker culture since Kanye drops his music and Yeezys. However, my first Yeezy was the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Butter".

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

Collaboration with various artists.

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

Every new sneaker puts a smile on my face and it's addictive.

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

I have two favourite creators. The first one is Nike x Virgil Abloh - I love the its material and colours. The second one is Adidas x Kanye where I love its boost sole and their unique designs.

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

That's a very good question! The only thing I would like to see is the collaboration between Nike and Kanye West again.

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

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 BRED, Air Jordan 1 Mocha, Air Jordan 4 University Blue, Air Jordan 1x Balvin, Nike Dunk Low x Union Court Purple.

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

The Air Jordan 1 Low x Dior.

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

I have nothing besides sneakers. They are my passion to wear and I collect them every day!
