Black on Black, Air Max Red

20140409-171135.jpg

I went to one of my favorite Portland caf├ęs called Nuvrei which is located in the Pearl District on 10th and Flanders. Not only do they have some of the most amazing coffee I’ve tasted but they do all of their own baked goods and they even have their own macaroon shop. Whenever I go there they are always friendly and I receive wonderful service.

I had the pleasure of meeting Alex who works and Nuvrei and it turns out he is quite the sneaker appreciator. He says that Air Max is his favorite sneaker and he has over six pairs, but he is starting to collect Jordans. Here he is rocking his red Air Max 1. I like how he styled his kicks with black pants that have a leather panel and layered his tops. Style is on point!

Little Lebrons, Big Spirit

20140408-190634.jpg

I would like you all to meet a little light of mine and one of the most inspirational human beings I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

This is Suchitra. Suchitra was born in India and was adopted by her mother when she was a baby. Her mother traveled all the way to India to pick her up and bring her back to her new home in Portland, OR. What makes this girl so special is how brave she is. I have never met another individual who is as big of a fighter as she is. Suchitra was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy as a baby and was told by doctors she would never walk without leg braces and the help of a wheel chair for the rest of her life. However, over a few years full of physical therapy, surgery and hard work, she is now able to stand and walk without the use of her braces at all, and is getting stronger every day. I see such hard work and dedication and I am completely inspired. Suchitra is a little ball of light full of energy and spunk that lights up any room she enters, causing people to gravitate towards her.

And what is the best part? She is rocking major sneaker heat. Here she is sporting her favorite sneakers, the Lebron 9 South Beach Miami Vice. Which I know for a lot of you, including me is a holy grail for us sneaker appreciators. She says she loves these sneakers because “They are comfortable and offer good support in the heel”.20140408-191410.jpg

Ms. Sky Hi

IMG_6816

Here is Heather rocking her Nike Poncho which is included in the new Nike Tech Pack that was released. The Nike Tech Pack is one of my favorite collections that Nike Sportswear has released because they implemented the use of fleece fabric into their designs which offers lightweight warmth. I love how Heather put together her poncho with a pair of black leather skinnies, her RayBan Aviators and her leather snakeskin print Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s. I love the Sky Hi’s because they are a feminine approach to wearing sneakers for the woman who doesn’t collect sneakers but still wants an athletic approach to sportswear. The snakeskin is fierce and paired with the leather skinnies gives an all around black-on-black, edgy look. This chick is ready to take on the city, but wants comfort while doing so.

All Hail the Gator King

ImageImage

These LeBron “Gator King” 11’s made for the All Star Games which was hosted in New Orleans this year, is hands down one of my favorite LeBron’s ever made. The detail is astounding with the laser-etched glow in the dark Hyperposite underlining contrasted with the deep purple upper, all channeling the alligator inspiration which we all know is the king of the Bayou with translates perfectly for LeBron James. Steve rocks this with a dark wash jean and a grey hoodie. With these sneakers, rocking too much color in your outfit might take away from the shoes. I like the way Steve put a simpler outfit together, to really let his kicks stand out!
