What's your favorite sneaker? Why? My favorite pair of kicks are definitely my Vashtie x Air Jordan 2s. She was the first woman to collab on a pair and I hope to do the same in the future!

What do you think of the current state of female sneaker culture? I think sneaker culture right now for women is better than before! I hate the resale game now but I must say, I'm happy that we are finally getting dope kicks in colors other than PINK!

Lastly, how do you incorporate sneakers into your daily wardrobe? Honestly I just throw them on I don't think too much about it.. but sometimes if I think my outfit is too girly or dressy I'll put on a pair just to shake it up a little bit and tone it down.
