His style is subtle in the way that he’s not overly flashy with his outfits, but his look is always on point. He blends the business professional look with dope sneakers in a way that leaves his followers and readers wondering if they could pull that off. His work consists of interviewing some of the most stylish and fashion conscious people in music and sports and occasionally firing off a fire tweet. These interactions help him develop a sense of style that you may not see on the streets of Manhattan. His ability to hop from one style to the next with ease makes his influence on the sneaker world that much more important.

90s Style Blog 2016

With Janet Jackson and Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes Birthdays coming up, how could we not take a walk down memory lane with 90’s fashion trends? There is no shocker as to why some of these trends snuck their way back into our hearts. Comfortable, out there, or unique, the 90’s had it all. Today, street styles like overalls, mini backpacks and choker necklaces have been spotted everywhere and we have the original 90’s muses to thank for that. Since these fashion statements are getting a bunch of attention, here are our top 6 styles from the 90’s still walkin’ and turning heads.

The concrete jungle of NYC is a beast of its own kind. If you’re gonna make it in New York, then your style better be on point and you have to roll with the punches. With over eight million people calling the city their home, it’s safe to say that people don’t dress and act like everyone else. Housing some of the biggest style magazines and brands, you can say that fashion roots run deep, and having some of the most influential people in the world live here can put pressure on everyone else. You never know who can be around the corner and if you unexpectedly bump into but if that moment does happen you want your outfit to be on point and leave that lasting impression.

The city is fast-paced, and is the influential center of art, culture and fashion for the U.S., which brings people from all around. With so much influence in the city, it can be hard to remain an individual who doesn’t get lost in the masses. We caught up with four unique individuals who bring their own style to everything they do.

Joe La Puma (@jlp8) brings his own style to everything he does. Being the Director of Content Strategy for Complex magazine keeps him in the creative mindset everyday; from building a dope outfit to cover stories that have the internet going nuts.

Ravie B (@ravieb) is from the Bronx and developed a talent with the camera in her hand. Her creative eye behind the lens also helps her cook up a dope fit. She has mastered her craft by bringing her own unique style to the photography world and standing out from the competition.

Soraya YD (@sorayayd) lives in the fashion world, so you know she has her own style. Being from Queens, she developed her own individuality in the street style of the diverse neighborhoods.

Jake Woolf (@_jakewoolf) is a fashion writer from Manhattan who prides himself on his own look. His freedom to wear whatever he wants helps him stay comfortable in every outfit he puts together.

Each of these individuals prides themselves on their signature look and being comfortable, something they all have in common on their pursuit of style. Their style helps them stand out from the crowd and doing that in New York City is no easy task. These four people all come from different cities but they learned to survive on their own in the Big Apple. Creativity and comfort help them all create their one of a kind looks on a daily basis in one of the most fashionable cities in the world.

When it comes to colorways, there are none that are as classic as “Bred”. The combination of Black, Red, and White has donned so many Jordan sneakers that we have come to expect them on newer releases. We’ve even seen the colorway transition to running silhouettes and casual pairs. What started as a colorway to match Michaels Bull’s uniform has grown into an epidemic. When you see someone on the street with a sneaker that has the colorway you can’t help but give them a head nod for the appreciation of it.
