How Sally Javadi became the ultimate sneakerhead
Even if you are a very dedicated kicks collector, it’s impossible to beat Sally Javadi, whom you may already know on Instagram as @sallyssneakers. On her feed, the Persian-Danish sneakerhead shows off her fire kicks and favorite clothing pairings.
Sally got more than 270k followers without showing her face, just working with her passion for sneakers and making incredible pics. Her selfies in the mirror are already a trademark of the influencer who also has a psychology major.
And why kicks? “I played basketball from the age 7-15, so I guess I was drawn to streetwear and sneakers early without thinking of it much,” she told The Sole Supplier. Her first pair was a Nike Air Force 1 Low Top that she bought with her own money.
For Sally, it’s hard to pick favorites, but there are the specials. The Chicago Jordan 1 Off-Whites in white, red, and black deconstructed leather was a treasure found during the lockdown. And the multicolor leather Melody Ehsani x Nike Jordan 1 Mids is very important to her because Ehsani manifests her message of female empowerment and self-expression in her vision of this AJI.
Her personal gallery is a way to exercise creativity, especially during isolation days. Her sneakers have made Sally discover a side she didn't know before, she wants to invent, and wants to get her own design for Nike one day. You go Sally.
