Qis Maraj - Singaporean Artist Interview


Hapsari Listya
February 21, 2023

Qis @qismaraj was drawn to sneakers after receiving her first Air Jordan 4s on her birthday. She loves how sneakers have boosted her confidence ever since. She's an avid fan of Air Jordan and hopes to collaborate with the brand someday!

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

When I first entered a sneaker shop a few years ago, I was fascinated with the color schemes and unique style. However, I didn't think of buying or collecting them as I didn't feel the need to at that moment until I got my first pair of Air Jordans 4 sneakers on my birthday.

When I wore those, it felt like a confidence boost. I like how it compliments my style; my friends would agree too.
