words & interview // Ian Stonebrook:
You don’t have to dig deep into the Instagram comments on DeJ Loaf‘s page to find fellow females fanning out and men moved to emojis and marriage proposals. Sure, there’s plenty of fish in the social sea and endless artists to admire, but what makes DeJ one in a million?
Like Aaliyah before her, the fellow Detroit-native stays sporty without sacrificing sex appeal, relishing in range that’s both cute and confident. Rewriting the ‘street but sweet’ signature brought on by Baby Girl rather than forging it, DeJ keeps it realer than most in a manner that’s always comfortable, never contrived.
So, what does a lady that can pull off everything from Clyde Frazier furs to D-Generation X jerseys keep on her feet? DeJ breaks it down in the latest My 5.
Air Jordan 6 Black/Infrared
DeJ Loaf: “Always the Infrared 6s. I used to get Jordans like every Saturday. That’s how I got my name because I wanted to switch my style up because I was always wearing Jordans and Air Force 1s.”
“I was a sneakerhead, I used to collect them. It was crazy standing out in lines for them and not being able to afford them, I remember those days. My mom used to get them for me and all that stuff. I used to go to Athlete’s Foot on Warren and Connor, I had a plug up there and used to get them early.”
