"Today's the first day in a while that I haven't worn Nike shoes, and my feet are like [makes choking noise]. It's all about the sneakers for me. Everybody loves the Flyknits, but I think those changed my life completely. My favorite pair right now are the Racers. I would love to have a pair of the multi-knit ones, but right now I just have the black and white ones.

"It's kinda sad to say but I didn't actually wear Nikes as a kid. I think I wore Pumas when I was younger. But from now on the Flyknits are going to be glued to my feet. It's totally made my job a lot easier. The funny thing is, Nam, from Street FSN, he refuses to wear sneakers. He always wears brogues! Last season on the second to last day he was like, 'Oh my feet hurt so much!' I was like, 'Uh, go buy a pair of sneakers.' So he went and bought a pair of Nikes, and he was like, 'Oh shit, my feet feel so much better.' I was like, 'You waited 58 days to buy a pair of sneakers. Dude...' Some people just let looks take over comfort. I'm Nike all the way."
