WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST SNEAKER MEMORY?
My earliest memory was in 2008. I was 14 and hung out with my oldest brother Luis looking for Air Jordan 6 Retro 'Carmine'. It was springtime, so it was a nice day out. We search around Philadelphia for about 2 hours until we finally found them.
He was the one that got me into collecting sneakers.
WHAT SNEAKERS ARE CURRENTLY IN YOUR ROTATION?
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SNEAKERS IN YOUR COLLECTION?
My favorite sneaker is Nike KD 7 'Aunt Pearl.' This sneaker means a lot to me because I waited in line for hours to get them to walk the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia with my mother, who had beaten breast cancer.
WHAT'S SOME ADVICE THAT YOU WOULD GIVE TO A NEW COLLECTOR?
My tip for a new collector would be to never buy sneakers just because of the hype. Buy them because you want them, and ultimately because you like them. Also - you should always make sure you keep your collection clean. Brands like Jason Markk have a good product for you to make sure that your kicks stay fresh. Lastly, and most t have fun with your styles.
