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.
What Sneaker brands are you a fan of? Why?
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.
10 Deep has done it again. I have been a fan of theirs and have posted them on my blog before, and will continue if they keep making clothing like this. I lust after men’s clothing just as much as I do women’s. Switching it up is super fitting for me because my moods change as my clothing does. Anyway (this isn’t really about me) this collection was inspired by the street culture in Japan and you can certainly see these inspirations present in the Kanji characters and the fit of the clothing. Make sure you get the full lookbook experience over at 10deep.com and shop around as well. Check a few of my faves below.
This may be something you want to invest in.
This bag is stylish and functional at the same time. The Shine Sneaker pack is the size of a carry on bag with compartments for your sneakers as well as clothing, accessories, Ipads and even your fitted caps
Shrine is a company dedicated to keeping tho sneakers you work so hard to get (or not) stay fresh. Along with the shoe backpacks they also make shoe rack storage mounts as well. These racks are functional and put those Jays on display in all their glory.
