In our third feature of influential Instagram Sneakerheads, we talk to Kitty Cowell – @kittycowell
Hi I’m Kitty and I’m a blogger and fashion stylist, I’m vegetarian and I like Matcha Latte’s with almond milk…
When and how did you first get into collecting sneakers?
Oh wow, I’ve always been into sneakers, literally since I was a tiny kid. But collecting was later mostly due to money. I couldn’t just buy and buy trainers when I was younger, I bought them and wore them til I had to get a new pair. I started collection about 10 years ago, 7 years ago I started keeping the boxes and getting really into it and then properly it’s been like 6 years of being a bit obssesed.
How many sneakers do you own and what are your favourite pair?
Around 250… in-fact I need to move in order to house them all soon! My favourite pair, that’s hard but maybe my Nike Air 180 Solar Red’s from 2010. A simple but great shoe that’s pretty hard to find in that colour way and my size (UK 5.5).
Which sneakers do you wear the most day-to-day?
I like Reebok classics a lot, I have a pair of black classics with metallic detailing that I like to wear or Nike Air Max 95’s, I have a black and silver pair of Quickstrikes. Anything monochrome gets worn a lot!
Which sneakers are you excited about in 2017?
Spiridons! I just got a pair and man am I happy. Also VERY excited about the Nike Vapormax!
Could you tell us your top 3 sneakers of the moment?
