My first ever sneakers were the Vans Old Skool in black. Back then, I wore them because they were stylish and comfortable.
When I started dating my fiancé, my then-boyfriend, we began coordinating outfits, including shoes. He had always been a sneakerhead, and it grew on me. I became more interested in sneakers when I saw Nike Low Dunks in University Blue.
Most probably, sneaker customizations resonate a lot with me. I love seeing people get creative with their sneakers and make them unique.
A new pair of kicks definitely makes me confident. It elevates my look, and I feel best when I look good.
Simon Porte Jacquemus is one of my favorite designers, and his brand is amazing. The creative direction of all his fashion shows often leaves me in awe.
There is this guy on TikTok - @daoudldn who designs sick collabs of celebrities and Nike. Tyler, The Creator's Golf collection with Nike Dunk Low, would make a fire collaboration too.
Some of my current pairs are Nike Dunk Low Panda, New Balance 327, and 990v5.
I would say it's the New Balance 550 x Aimee Leon Dore.
I can't leave the house without my shades.
