Since childhood, hip-hop has been the world in which I grew up and lived, and basketball and sneakers are a big part of hip-hop culture. I admire Jordan when it comes to basketball; I followed and studied him since his rookie year.
In 2013, when the Air Jordan 1 Breds went retro, as a fan of MJ, I immediately bought them because they were one of Jordan's most controversial and first shoes. When I first saw and touched them in person, this is when I told myself that I would start collecting shoes.
Nike and Virgil Abloh released "The Ten" project in 2017. Since that project, sneaker collaborations have become more popular, as streetwear and luxury wear merged. The so-called Hypebeast trend is in vogue now.
Almost every sneaker collaboration is increasing in price, as everyone wants to own a hype shoe.
My favorite silhouette of all time is the Air Jordan 1 High. It's a staple in my rotation, with more than half of my shoes being J1 Highs.
I feel like something is being added to myself. I will see something new in myself that I haven't seen yet.
It will add to the image I want people to see of who and what I am because, for me, what you wear and how you dress reflects your personality.
The Air Jordan 3 is one of my favorite designs by Jordan Brand, and Virgil Abloh is one of my most admired designers. Since Virgil passed away in 2021, I have not seen any designs or leaks from him for the silhouette. I still wish there was a collaboration, but it's unclear what will happen.
As a rapper, I love every Travis Scott sneaker collaboration. Aside from the dope design, he always represents hip-hop culture. I also appreciate the A Ma Maniere and Jordan collaboration because of its premium quality.
OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Chicago'. Besides its high price, it is also challenging to find in my size. This is my favorite among all the Off-White and Nike/Jordan collaborations.
Cap. I love collecting caps, such as vintage caps, dad hats, snapbacks, etc. It's also an extra bit of swag for me. You'll be enchanted because they're really beautiful.
