How did you get into footwear design initially?

I enrolled myself into footwear design because I had my kicks with the sports, sportswear, and the sports footwear well since seventh grade. I used to be a quarterback on my high school team, then at my University campus. loved Nikes. It was something I desired. I saw that all my friends had it and I was also into drawing so I put the two together – design, art, and shoes. It wasn’t until I went to college (Rhode Island School of Design) that I kind of forgot about it… All because I didn’t think it would ever happen. But then industrial design came up as a major option for me and on one of the presentation slides they actually had a shoe on there. I was like, “Ok, I’m going back to my initial dream”.
