How has your hometown influenced your style/taste in sneakers? I think growing up in the south and being the only girl in my family I was always influenced by what my brothers and their friends were wearing. There’s a sauce in the South that made me more open-minded to even the most “masculine” sneakers but mixing them with a dress or a skirt since I was in high school. My hometown is actually not very sneaker influenced. I went to a predominately all black school where I picked my love for sneakers. First pair I bought for myself were air force 1s or “willie Ds” as well called them.
Common Ace wants to uplift YOUR voice!
As an immigrant I’ve experienced racism and discrimination. But even as an immigrant it does not compare to the blatant racism black people in this country go through! It’s very important to me that I use my voice to inform/educate the latino community as to why we must show support to BLM. Fighting for them also means fighting for us! Joining forces as minorities is the only way to see change for POC and BIPOC. Black Lives Matter! Immigrant Lives Matter!
