The rise of streetwear culture in fashion has been somewhat of a phenomenon over the last eight years or so, and these days, fashion lovers are trading their sky-high heels for a flatter option: sneakers. If you’re a lover of rare, hard-to-find bags, you’ve already gotten a pretty good primer on what it’s like to collect sneakers. Snagging the latest and greatest It-pair can be just as difficult, if not more, as snagging the latest It-bag.
Both industries can feel exclusive at times, giving off an air of mystery while parading themselves as a cool-kids-only club for those in the know. At the core, however, collectors of either type or those who love both like me know that a genuine passion is about so much more than just the hype factor.
My passion for both bags and sneakers knows no bounds, and at any given moment, I’ve got a list of pairs I’m following on StockX and a cart full of handbags too. Below I’ve rounded up a list of the pairings I love right now.
