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.
If you had to create a hashtag for your life, what would it be? #foreverevolving
