It was the cherrywood 16’s that did it for me. My friend rocked them to school during the last week of class in 7th grade and remember seeing how clean they looked. Loved that it had a reversible gator. I was completely in love with them, almost obsessed with them. The whole summer of 2001 I was begging my mom to get them for me. They were $100 in GS sizes back in the day, which was really expensive for GS sizes. I was used to wearing white Air Force ones. I finally ended getting them in August 2001, and welp, the rest was history from there.

Air Force 1s back when I was in HS, I guess. I think I still have my original white/navy pair... somewhere.

The shoe that I fell in love with at first site was the WC4s that originally dropped. That shoe started everything for me.

I’ve never owned a 2, 4, or 9. I’m dying for a solid pit of 4s lately. Classic silhouette

Explained my whole “sneaker love story” and origin as well in a vid. Check out your boy if you want to discuss more/see an actual throwback rotation in 2019.

Eastbay magazine.. My parents were big on "buy what you need not want" so i got 1, 2 if lucky, pairs of shoes a year and they were always something from the clearance rack.. I had to admire shoes from afar.. Finally got my first job at 15yo and bought a pair of fake 6s from a local streetwear store since i couldn't drive and it was right across the highway from my job.. Bro, the jumpman on the back wasnt even holding a ball.. I knew they were fake but i was just happy to have a Jordan silhouette on my feet!

The first pair of legit sneakers for me were the Jordan 2 low (metallic silver/maize) '05 release but i think i got them in '06 for like $90.. Took off from there and eventually started venturing off into other brands/models/etc.
