"Like most Filos - My love for the game of basketball influenced my love for sneakers.
As a kid growing up, being a massive Michael Jordan and Reggie Miller fan, the thought in my head was if I wore the sneakers they were wearing, I'd be as good as them in the basketball court - I could jump like 'em, shoot like' em, just be as great as 'em!
I remember as a kid, when I received my first EVER signature sneaker which happened to be Kobes, I wanted to sleep in them and literally wear them everywhere and anywhere.
I remember seeing a Jordan commercial where he was wearing Jordan 12s and I immediately fell in love with it.
It's always been about basketball - however through the years i've leared to embrace and appreciate streetwear, different styles and fashion and with that, the different types of sneakers and how and what to wear with them.
It's really amazing how people mix and match nowadays - but again personally it's been deeply rooted in the game I've loved for as long as I remember.
So if I had to point to a ""Who"" it's easily gonna be those two, Kobe and Jordan."
