Here are some highlights from Fabolous interview with Footwear News below:

How did you come up with your own personal style?

“It’s really about comfort for me now, what I feel comfortable in, whatever vibe I wake up feeling like. I constantly change what look I’m wearing, what shoes I’m wearing I’m wearing Filas; at the shoot, I wore Converse and Saucony. I like to be versatile; I like to be diverse [and] try to keep all the styles I’ve seen and liked or became accustom to and mix it up.”

Name any designers or labels you’re fond of?

“I grew up in the 1990s, so I like a lot of the styles that were going on then. The design of the shoes, to me, was truly ahead of their time — a lot of the classic Jordans and a lot of the retro stuff that’s coming back now is really all from that time period. Some of them were slept on — they were worn by living legends of the time or connected to people who were bigger-than-life stars, and they’ve moved on and new stars have appeared, but those shoes still have a connection with people. I like that ’90s era of style and swag.”

What’s your most fond sneaker memory?

“My uncle buying me the [Nike] Air Max 1 — that was my first sneaker I had with the air bubble on it. That whole technology idea had first came out and at that time it was futuristic — now it’s nothing, but then it was futuristic, kids at school wanted to touch it. That was my first cool memory of having cool shoes.”

What are your must-stop sneaker shops?

“I definitely like Packer [Shoes]. It’s nostalgic, too; Mike [Packer] is a guy from a long line of sneakerdom — his father had a sneaker store and left him the sneaker store. That’s one of my favorite shops. I like a couple shops out of town, too. In Boston, there’s a store called Bodega — I like how dope it is that there’s a bodega out front. You go in and it’s go the refreshment, the juices and sodas, and there’s a counter where you pay for stuff, and you keep going in and there’s a sneaker store in the back. I like Major in [Washington] D.C.; I like Pusha T’s shop in [Virginia], Cream, and I like Sportie LA. I try to pop in a lot of shoe shops all over the country, I go there just to check them out and see what they’re holding. I went to 12AM:Run, the shop Nas is a partner with, and it was a cool shop as well…

…I want to do a shop — next year sometime, I want to do a shop. How passionate I am about it and how much I like to wear shoes, different styles of shoes, that’s why a shop is coming into my mind. I like variation; I like different shoes. I’m going to start working on it soon, I’ve got to get some music out there first and let that run on autopilot. Brooklyn would be dope, that’s home base for me, [and] I like some areas in New Jersey, like the Hoboken type of vibe.”
