I enjoy meeting new people especially ones who are truly individuals and comfortable with who they are. Rico D is one of those people. Get to know him and his style, passion for shoes and get a heads up on the sneakers you must cop in the Spring.

Who are you? Where are you from?

I am Rico D… Born and raised in Berkeley, CA.

I would describe my style as……

Sophisticated Streetwear… Urban Streetwear… Athletically Street… Ashy to classy.

When you hear “I Am Styling On You” what does that mean?

The term first brings to mind CONFIDENCE. Confidence not only in yourself but what you are bringing to the table and going put on display for the world. The term “i am styling on you” creates a mindset and describes a person that is confident not only in their fashion sense but also in self worth. It’s a lifestyle that we must become devoted to in order to SHINE! in more ways than one.

Sneaker brands that I am a fan cover many lifestyles and demographics. MY FIRST LOVE AND MAIN CHICK is and WILL ALWAYS BE NIKE! LOL I could not sit here and say that Nike did not spark my shoe interest. 1993 The Nike Air Raid aka “ Tim Hardaway” changed my LIFE!! and a Love affair with sneakers began! There have been brands that have made nice sneakers over the years but M has remained consistent. I think thats what draws me to them. Nike can release a pair of shoes from 20yrs ago and SELLOUT! No matter what is or has been set the set the bar! PERIOD!! lol but don’t sleep on other brands… Adidas, Puma, Reebok, Asics, Del Toro, Timberland, New Balance, RedWing, Converse, FILA the list is LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG.
