Kyle’s infatuation with sneakers started in high school when he started running. Steve Prefontaine was (and still is) his inspiration – he loved his attitude, his style…and confidence that he always backed up with achievements on the track. Kyle and friends used to write inspiring thoughts on their running sneakers…such as “Go Pre!”…this is when he really took interest to the kicks on his feet.
“I’m going to work so that it’s a pure guts race at the end, and if it is, I am the only one who can win it.” Steve Prefontaine
Kyle now owns 150-200 pairs. They are a lifestyle; different kicks are worn to different places for different reasons. He enjoys rocking sneakers that combine Sportswear and Running influences. Hence, the Nike Lunar Flow Woven’s on his feet today!
