Sneakers are great, but the people you meet through them are even better. H-Town Sneaker Summit founder Kadoma is not only one of those great people you meet, but a man that?s responsible for bringing together many more. We reached out to Kadoma to find out what he?s wearing in preparation for this weekend?s 7th annual H-Town Sneaker Summit. Recalling his love for skateboarding and seasonal wearing habits (it?s hot in Texas), he elaborated on shoes that push the culture both old and new. See the community leader?s current rotation.
Kadoma: “Right now I’m busy planning our 7th annual H-Town Sneaker Summit event. I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that literally everything thing I have goes into it; blood, sweat, tears, sacrifice, and dollars. Honestly, it takes away from a lot of things including my own ‘usual’ personal shopping habits, but to me it is worth the sacrifice. During summertime I always seem to stray away from basketball shoes a bit and wear a lot more skate, lifestyle, or comfort shoes. Here is what is in my rotation right now.”
Kadoma: “This is probably my most favorite shoe right now. Skateboarding is what actually got me into sneakers, with my favorite all time skate shoe being the Vans Chukka Boot. I kinda look at this shoe as an updated silhouette of that. It has a simple and clean design inspired by a lifestyle shoe, yet just a simple change of colors and/or materials seems to continually give the simple silhouette new life. I also like this shoe because it came out pretty much during the height of hype for Nike SB and took things into a brave and bold new direction true to skateboarding without sacrificing style.”
