QUESTIONS & ANSWERS #1
I asked on IG & Snapchat for some questions to put together this post. I'm going to post all the questions I was actually asked since it wasn't that many. Maybe next time I'll get more!
Q: What is your rarest VS your favorite sneaker?
A: My rarest would NOW be the Sneaker Room x Nike Air Trainer Victor Cruz breast cancer shoe. There was only 50 pairs made by Nike. My favorite shoe is a really hard question. I'm torn between two shoes that mean a lot to me. If I could only pick one, then I'd go with the Nike Air Money.
Q: Have you ever copped fakes by accident?
A: I'm not ashamed to say yes. :( Lol. When I was first getting into sneakers heavy my mom came home with a pair of Black & White Jordan 7's. This was like 2004/2005..... waaaaaaaaay before the Oreo 7's were ever thought of. Without much knowledge of shoes, I posted a picture on Sneaker Play and my friends quickly told me to get rid of them. In that moment I realized I was going to have to learn more about shoes before purchasing them.
Q: N'sync or BSB?
A: Now this is a real confession. I was totally obsessed with the Backstreet Boys! I'm talking about collecting Teen Bop magazines to put pictures and posters on my walls. The first concert I ever went to was BSB!
Q: Favorite Food?
A: Prior to moving to NJ, I would say Mexican food. But now I'd have to say Cuban food because it isn't available on every block. To be more particular I love piccadillo. I make it often with the potatoes inside & all that!
Q: Favorite Holiday?
A: It would have to be Christmas! Everything from the family gathering, the special treats, coquito, the decorations and the spell of the tree. I love all of it!
Q: What do you like most about NY/NJ?
A: Is this a trick question? My whole entire heart is still 305 till I die.
Q: Favorite Jordan?
A: I know this isn't common, but Jordan 14's are my favorite.
Q: If you have an opportunity to do a collaboration with a sneaker company, which company and sneaker would it be?
A: First, let me say I'd love to work on ANY shoe with ANY company. Lol. But if I really had to pick it would be Reebok on the InstaPump Fury. I love the shoe and it has so many possibilities. I would also love to work on the Nike Air Presto for women. Let's put this in the air and hopefully one day it will come true!
Q: Favorite sneakers of 2016?
A: I made a list of my top 25 sneakers of 2016. You can check it out here.
Q: What do you dislike most about the sneaker game as of now?
A: The only thing that really bothers me is the uneducated hype. By that I mean the people who say they want the new "Gamma's" - but are actually asking for Space Jam's. They do this without knowing that Gamma is actually the colorway, and Jordan 11 is the shoe. Thinking that all Jordan 11's are called Gamma. I just don't understand the forced need/want for something without even knowing what it is.
Q: Advice to girls trying to start a sneaker collection?
A: BE YOU! BE YOU! BE YOU! I can't stress this enough. Buy what you like, dress how you like and style it how you like. Collecting sneakers isn't for anyone else but yourself. It's your money and your feet! For someone starting a collection I would also suggest waiting to purchase expensive kicks. Especially with the smaller sizes, the price usually goes down with time.
Hope you guys like this Q&A, and hopefully I can answer more questions next time! Leave some questions in the comments or send me a DM for the next time. <3
