Nurin Nadhira @ndyrsli is a Malaysian sneakerhead who started her sneaker obsession in high school, where all of her friends and herself admired many sports shoes. Air Jordan Cement 2016 was her sneaker game changer and she loves Air Jordan ever since.

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

I would say that while I was in school, we all simply liked to look at sports shoes, and I guess it kind of grew from there, expanding my interest in sneakers. It all started with sports shoes like Nike, Adidas, and Puma, then I started liking Vans and Converse, and so on. But the Air Jordan White Cement 2016 was the game changer for me and caught my interest in collecting sneakers.

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

One of the early ones that stand out to me is the Roshe Run era when everyone would go crazy for a pair. It honestly piques my curiosity to delve into the realm of shoe trends, especially since it's so much fun to do so with my friends.

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

It definitely helps in resonating my aura and making me feel more at ease with my style than before. Somehow, it made me happy because the new kicks on my feet complete my look.

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

I didn't look through many designers and creators, but Virgil Abloh stands out as one who has made an impression on me. I mean, his creations stand apart from those of other designers, and I enjoy seeing that.

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

Nike collaborating with Tyler, The Creator would be amazing in my opinion. I've always admired Tyler's masterpieces and collaborations with other brands, like Converse. Such a unique perspective and appearance and it would be fantastic if Nike considered it.

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

A popular pair right now has to be the Travis Air Max 1 in Baroque Brown, which I purchased. Definitely, a clear color scheme that matches most of the colors in my clothing. Not to mention the Joe Fresh Good and New Balance P550 collaboration's cleanest silhouette. Goodness, what a fantastic pairs!

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

My ultimate holy grail sneaker is the Off White Jordan 4s, amazing.

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

I would say my fingerboard because it's been one of my favourite hobbies since my childhood. This tiny thing might look silly but it's more than that.
