Tyga aka King Gold Chains has been recently known for debuting his collaboration with L.A. Gear. Now, he’s been offered the cover spot of Footwear News‘ November issue, being stamp for his fashion sense, and his love for sneakers.
In the issue, Tyga talks about his favorite kicks and mass collection, opens up about Kylie Jenner, talks about Yeezy Boosts and more.
How many pairs of sneakers do you have?
“I’ve got a lot of shoes, but I don’t like to wear a lot. I tend to wear my top three or four. I have over a hundred for sure, but I’m always giving pairs away to my friends or loosing them.”
All sneaker heads have a certain shoe they buy in bulk. What’s yours?
“I’m such a fan of all white Vans. It’s the Cali boy in me again. I just love all white shoes. You can only get like two wears out of them, it just kills me. I buy like five at a time. They just get dirty so fast. You want something to always fit like when you first buy it. That feeling when you first it on.”
You arrived today wearing the new Yeezy 350 boots with a head-to-toe Yeezy look. What do you think it is about what Kanye West has done that has resonated so successfully?
“When he believes in something, he believes in it whether people don’t like it or like it. He’s going to do it anyway. Once people realize that, they take their barrier down. A lot of people judge things based on perception and don’t actually give it a try. Once they do, they like it and realize what he’s trying to do, on all levels. I get what he’s doing musically and am a fan of his as an artist and his drive. Everyone has different tastes, but right now, this is how I’m feeling like dressing.”
About the Yeezy Boost 950 Boots and his special Jenner connect, which he is included in the family special order:
“It’s winter and these just feel right. I’m lucky I don’t have to try and hunt them down online anymore. I like getting things first.”
