How many pairs of sneakers do you own?

A lot. I’m currently trying to narrow down and donate pairs that are going dusty on my shelves. It doesn’t make sense to hold onto something that someone else might love a lot more.

What elements do you consider most important when purchasing a sneaker?

Most of the time, I can’t even get into the store or the online checkout before they sell out. So generally, I now look for less hyped sneakers — ones that I know I love genuinely for the design, the story and most importantly, the comfort of the fit.

What are your top three favorite sneakers? 

90’s Air Force 1 (not the reissues happening since the early 2000s): It’s a classic and goes with everything. It wears so well and is the ultimate “for all” sneaker.

Allen Iverson’s Answer basketball shoes: Allen Iverson is my longtime hero for what he did both on and off the court. He — through my older sister’s friends — introduced sneaker culture to me.

adidas Forum Low: These are a thing of beauty, especially in the white/white colorway. They are an update to an iconic basketball shoe that I never had the pleasure of playing in, but I can still appreciate a classic.
