Where are you from and where do you live currently?

I'm currently residing in Downtown Houston,TX. Born and raised there from day one!

What was the first pair of sneakers you ever had?

The first pair of Jordans I ever got, I believe I was about 6 years old, I vividly remember that moment...bugging my mom & sister to help me choose a pair. I don't remember the exact Jordan model, but they weren't anything special to remember.

What got you into sneakers?

My passion for sneakers began to grow in the 6th grade when I saw a fellow classmate wearing the 2009 Hare Jordan 1's. Immediately my eyes were fixated on them. I told myself one day I HAVE TO GET A PAIR! To this very day I'm not a fan of the shoe anymore... does not catch my attention like it used to.

What is the most you spent on a sneaker?

The most I ever spent on one specific pair were my 1988 Fire Red Jordan 3's for $1,650.

What is the dirtiest shoe you own?

The dirtiest shoes I currently own are my two filming shoes. Alexander Wangs & my Adidas workshops. Super comfy!

What sneaker brand is your favorite and why?

It's very difficult to choose just one brand, since I like so many but at this very moment my favorite sneaker brand for runners are Pradas. I'm just in love with the silhouette.

Who is your favorite YouTuber or Instagramer to follow?

My favorite YouTube channel to follow currently is Nicolette Gray so much fun seeing her journey.

What is your favorite Reshoevn8r product and why?

My favorite product from Reshoevn8r has to be the Sneaker Wipes they are essential to have when trying to maintain a fresh pair of kicks.
