Kicktionary Vol. 1

Kicktionary Vol. 1

I’ve talked a lot about my love of sneakers, and if you read my last sneaker post, you’ll know that I’ve launched Kicks & Fros, a space for all my sneaker lovers! I don’t know if it’s because I grew up as a tomboy, but my one true love has always been sneakers; my sneaker habit started around age 12 or 13, and I haven’t been able to kick it yet (pun intended).  


I remember getting my first job as a teenager and buying a pair of Jordans with some (or all) of the money from my first check. And thanks to my dad dropping some wisdom on us at an early age, my brother and I always kept our sneakers clean with a handy toothbrush and soap. 


So, what is a “kicktionary”? It’s the Melissa Chanel version of a sneaker Q&A! Let’s hop right into it.

Q: What are you sneaker must-have’s?

A: I honestly have to have a pair of Nike Prestos, AirMax, and Adidas in my closet at all times. I've never purchased multiples of the exact same sneaker, but I’ll shamelessly say that I have purchased the same sneaker in different colors.

Q: What sneakers are you absolutely loving right now?

A: I can't live without my Yeezys (s/o to my connect) and my AirMax 97's. I could wear either of them every day!


Q: What are the most expensive pair of sneakers you own?

A: Yeezys for sure. I'm not telling ya'll how much I paid because my mom is probably reading this, lol.

Q: What’s the most comfortable sneaker you own?

A: 100% my Adidas Boosts! It literally feels like you're walking on a cloud. I usually mix and match my sneakers with dresses and two-piece outfits, but for some reason I only like wearing them with jeans. Weird, I know.

Q: What’s the trendiest sneaker you own?

A: Puma Creepers of course! I’m careful about which trends to follow, but I’m so glad I hopped on this one! They're so dope that I own 3 pair. *hides face*

Q: Which sneaker do you have the most of in your closet?

A: Jordans for sure. They’re a classic!

Q: Biggest sneaker regret?

A: Ummm that's a good one. I love all my kicks, but I’ll admit that being an impulse buyer naturally comes with a few “okay, maybe I shouldn’t have splurged on these” purchases. If I had to choose one pair, it'd be my Adidas from the Pharrell collection. I was so hype to buy them, but have only worn them once.

Q: What’s your latest pick-up?

A: All-white vans.
