I've always been drawn to sneakers, even as a child, thanks to my older brother who was into basketball (I wanted all of his shoes). Back in the day, I wore a lot of K-Swiss too.
But it was in middle school that I first fell in love with Nikes in general. I was living in Taiwan at the time, and the city I lived in didn't have my size in any women's shoes, so I ended up going with men's shoes.
I fell in love with a pair of white Nike Dunk Highs with a rainbow pattern on the back. I wore that pair until I graduated from college, and I still have a few other pairs from middle school that I wear now.
I have such vivid memories of my white Air Jordan 13s from the second grade because Space Jam came out a year before and Michael Jordan was basically everywhere.
I think a lot of the fashion collaborations are incredibly cool and unique while remaining faithful to both brands. However, I'm not sure when I'll be able to own a pair.
Most of my sneakers are Nikes. The ones I wear the most are my Air Force 1 Low 'Rose White,' Air Jordan Legacy 312 'Sail Pistachio Frost,' Nike Oski x Dunk High SB 'Great White,' SB Force 58, and Billie Eilish x Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Mushroom.'
I think fear contributes to around 80% of the situation.
There was a period when I had a few hard-to-find sneakers and didn't want to wear any of them. I believe I kept a few pairs in the box for a few years since I didn't want to harm them on the first wear and be sad.
But because I prefer unusual colors or very bright colorways, being able to pair them with my clothing is incredibly satisfying.
I'm not sure about all of the existing collaborations because I didn't really get into collaborations until the last few years. However, I'd like to see more food/video game collaborations.
Moschino, perhaps? I love how many of their designs are quirky and fun.
I'd describe my style as eclectic. I just lean toward what I believe looks incredible or has an interesting design. My closet is also mainly made up of hoodies and jackets.
I'd like to own the Louis Vuitton x Nike collection!
Rings, mantra bands, and a wallet are among my everyday essentials.
