words // Gregory Williams:

Back with a new installment, Ask a Sneakerhead returns with yet another special guest. This time around, we caught up with Remy Banks of the rap group World’s Fair to chop it up about a bevy of topics. Though music may be his bread and butter, Remy also knows his way around the world of sneakers as well. From Run-DMC to of course kicks, you can catch everything the Queens, NY-bred MC had to say after the jump. Keep up with Remy by following him on Twitter and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section down below. Be on the look out for a fresh new helping of Ask a Sneakerhead next week and make sure you keep rocking with the team here at Nice Kicks for all your sneaker info needs. One time for Southside Jamaica Queens. Hardly home, but always repping.

Nice Kicks: Being a Queens native, and seeing what Run-DMC did for both the sneaker and music worlds, what does working with adidas and repping for the Q mean to you?

Remy Banks: Shout out to adidas and my Kamp Grizzly family for the continuous support and love they’ve been showing thus far. Being from Queens taught me how to be my own individual and set trends, RUN DMC did just that in the 80’s and I feel like the legacy is being carried on.

Nice Kicks: If you had to pick a sneaker silhouette that embodied everything about you, what shoe would it be? Why?

Remy Banks: This is a tough one. I’d say it’s a tie between the Nike Air Max 1 and the adidas Stan Smith. They’re both simple and comfortable and that’s my style in a bottle. I’m not flashy and neither are these silhouettes.

Nice Kicks: Any words of wisdom for aspiring rappers looking to make a lasting impact?

Remy Banks: Stay positive, stay innovative and be yourself.
