PS: What's your favorite way to personalize a pair of kicks?
EG: It's as simple as changing out the laces or even changing the way I tie the laces. Something else I like to do is add sneaker charms. Of course, it all depends on what the sneaker looks like, but I love that a simple sneaker can be transformed just by changing the color of the laces, or tying them in a unique way.
PS: Where are some of your favorite places to shop for personalization accessories?
EG: Etsy is one of my favorite place to shop for sneaker additions. We also carry sneaker charms on Thick Laces. Tarik Star is also an incredible designer that does high-end custom shoelaces. I want every single pair he offers.
PS: What's your go-to sneaker outfit that's classic enough to transcend time?
EG: One of my favorite acronyms that my elementary school teacher taught me is K.I.S.S, which means keep it simple, silly. I believe that the less you fuss over your outfit, the better it looks. So I love a nice jean, a simple, classic tee — maybe even a graphic tee — and a pair of sneakers. They're the star, so keep everything else simple. If I have a little bit more time, I'm definitely likely to be more girlie, so I'll do a nice skirt with a chunky sweater and, again, a dope pair of sneakers. The style options are absolutely endless.
