Which model made you start collecting sneakers?

» It has to be the Air Jordan 1 High "Obsidian". The Air Jordan 1 is my favorit model right now. it's definitely the silhuette I have the most of in my rotation. It's a sneaker I can never have to many of - currently I'm at 13 pairs, but that number is just growing by the month.

The model is so gorgeous, especially with all the different color combinations. Blue is my favorite color - and the Air Jordan 1 High "University Blue" is on the top of my list. They elevate any outfit! «

How big is your collection?

» I think my collection has surpassed 40 pairs of sneakers. After the Air Jordan 1, the Air Force 1 is my go-to. I really like both the classic whites, but also some of the newer pastel-colored releases.

The classic Air Force 1 "White" Is the most versatile sneakers ever. They are closely followed by the Air Jordan 1 High "Mocha" that works so well with most of my outfits. «

» I'm certain we will be seeing a lot of Dunks and Air Force 1s in Instagram-friendly pastel colors «

Whats the next sneaker hype?

» I'm certain the Air Jordan 1s will stay popular for a long time. The Air Jordan 4 is a bit underrated in my opinion. I think people are sleeping a bit on them, even though many of the best colorways are so hard to get.

Nike Dunks have been on major comeback lately - and I think we'll be seeing them a lot more in the streets. Those and the Air Force 1s. In Instagram-friendly pastel colors. «

How do you style your pictures?

» A beautiful street with a little sunset for that beautiful light is all I need. In winter-times I've grown fond of something as dull as a parking garage. The raw concrete aestetic works with my style. But I always prefer the light and beauty on a street at sunset. Most of my pictures are taken there.

Cool accesories and outfits that complement my sneakers, are always key for a good picture. A funny or playful pose as always better than just standing normally. «
