Hello, I’m Naufal Hadi, a freelance photographer based in Indonesia. I’m also a content creator and an Instagram influencer in the fashion industry. My daily routine is around creating content for endorsement and my personal Instagram. My photography mainly focused on pre-wedding projects, coffee shops, or endorsements.
I started focusing on being an Instagram content creator because some people are inspired me to do so. I would call them my role models or mentors haha, some of them are: @falzuh, @inisiative and @drownedinreverb.
From them, I learned a lot about photography techniques and how to mix and match some outfits. Sneakers also play an important role for match some outfits and personally, sneakers are my final touch and make me look more eye-catching. This is when I started loving sneakers so much and collecting them ever since for my Instagram feed: @mr.wisethetic.
I don’t think I prefer New Balance over other brands though. I’m one of the people who pay more attention to the silhouette and colourway of every sneaker because I like minimalist style.
I love them because of the silhouette and colourway, plus I feel comfortable when wearing them. For me, Nike Waffle One has a similar silhouette with Nike x Sacai LD Waffle which become one of my dream hype sneakers.
I’m collecting sneakers because I’m a fashion content creator. My Instagram feed is focused on an outfit of the day or outfit inspiration. Besides it’s about my passion for sneakers, I also need them for my Instagram feed.
My day to day style tends to be minimalist style. I prefer to choose monochrome and earth-tone colours, like black, white, brown, cream, olive, soft blue, etc. I’m also one of the people who like to wear an outer, whether it’s a jacket, shirt, or sweater.
I like to wear cloth pants or ankle pants, but it doesn’t mean I hate jeans. I prefer to wear cloth pants because it’s more comfortable and lighter. When I’m going out with friends or creating content, then I prefer to wear minimalist sneakers like NB 990 V5, Converse 70’s.
Don’t get me wrong, I also love local sneakers like Adagio 2.0 (Aztec White) from IGNIS (@ignis.footwear) and Clementia White/ Grey from Zoda Hamartin (@zodahamartinofficial). I love local sneakers because the design is also eye-catching and comfortable. I’m doing my best to inspire others to love local products more especially sneakers.
