Collection Summary

“I’ve always been heavily into shoes, the Bulls, and Michael Jordan because being from Chicago it comes pretty much natural. In 2004 I started high school at age 12, and I started to take shoe collecting more serious because my feet stopped growing. I was finally able to purchase everything I wanted from the online websites, and I had to have nice shoes in high school. My collection includes mainly Jordans and vintage basketball, as well as shoes from the 1990s. I was born in 1992, and I just love that era for clothing and style. What keeps me going is the feeling of nostalgia of getting the items that we couldn’t afford when I was younger. Since starting, some shoes have come and go, but my love has continued to grow into what it is today.”
