Elisa @elysscott feels the coolest when she has new shoes. Nike and Vans are her top picks as of the moment. And she also loves photography.

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

I've always been attracted to sneakers, even as a child. The first pair I remember having on my feet was a pair of red Puma Jamaica.

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

In Italy, the most significant trend in the history of sneaker culture has been the Nike Air Max 97 and the Nike Total 90.

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

I feel like I'm the coolest person in the world.

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

Kanye West was my favorite designer because he revolutionized the vision of sneaker culture as we experience it today - from his early work with Nike, Bapesta, Louis Vuitton, and so much more.

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

I wish that there would be Aaliyah x Nike collaboration.

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

I'm in love with the pairs of Nike Air Force 1 and Vans Old Skool Flame nowadays.

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

I really wanted to have Kanye West X Bapesta FS-001 Low 'College Dropout' and Clot X Air Jordan 14 Retro Low 'Teracotta'.

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

Apart from my sneakers, I love wearing a pair of cargo pants and a necklace with tag laces from my first AF1s.

Where can people find you on social media?
