Today we have the pleasure to interview one of our favorite sneaker bloggers: Angélica from „The Live It Up„. On her blog, she shows that girls definitely look great in sneakers and combines the most trendy but also classic sneakers with fresh outfits. Enough said, let’s ask her some questions …
1. First of all thank you for your time Angélica! Why are you collecting sneakers?
A pleasure speaking with you, guys!
Honestly, I’m not really sure…I guess it’s my older brothers’ fault. I remember seeing them in their sneakers for football and basketball, and looking at my ballet slippers and thinking, “Why aren’t mine as cool?”.
I remember the first Jordans I saw one of them wearing, and I thinking that they were the most incredible thing somebody could wear on their feet. (I didn’t even know what Jordans were then…) But in the end, in my house, they would always tell me that those “weren’t for girls”.
I suppose that my obsession to convert it into “something for girls” comes from there… And luckily, the industry is more and more open to the feminine market, and it grows every day. It’s great!
2. You’re one of the most popular female sneaker bloggers. When did you start to collect sneakers and when did the first companies or magazines approach you?
Hahaha, not sure if I consider myself as „one of the most popular female sneaker bloggers“. I just like shoes and I share this passion on my blog and social media. I started buying sneakers when I was young; well actually was my mum was the one who bought my first pairs.
5 years ago I start working with Nike, and then Footlocker and Reebok became two of my favorite companies to work with 🙂
I always try to support initiatives or blogs that share this passion with me.
3. Which sneaker is your all time favorite?
I am a little bit classic. Probably, a pair of Old Skool Vans. It is always a pair of them around. I always have a pair of them around.
4. Are you a full-time blogger?
No, I combine this passion with my real job as an art director (that it is actually another of my passions). So I think I am lucky, I guess 🙂
5. Adidas NMD or EQT?
Uhm, tough decision.. I would say NMD.
6. And last but not least, a little fashion advice from you: what is your favorite streetstyle outfit from head to toe?
Cozy, comfy outfits. My old Skool Vans, a pair of ripped jeans, one of my boyfriend’s t-shirts and a cute pair of socks 🙂
