@reyesyllera's collection isn’t one that you’d necessarily see being flex’ed on IG. Shifting away from social media, she spends more time looking at old catalogues than her screen. We had a chat about her recent finds, feeling on Nike retros and more. ⠀⠀Yo, Reyes! It's been a minute! What's been going on since gracing the cover of Issue 39? Have you picked up anything interesting lately?⠀⠀Things have changed a lot! For a while, I felt like I wasn't connecting with the new sneaker scene so I moved away from social media, but haven’t stopped the hunt. Recent pick up? Just a pair of Nike Air Classic BW ( ́02) 😉⠀⠀If you had to choose five silhouettes, what are they?⠀⠀The Nike Air Mariah `92, KR5, Pegasus Racer, MRV, Air Base ́90 (my personal grail). If I had to choose something more recent, it would be the Nike LDWaffle.⠀⠀Do you feel like female collectors are getting more recognition nowadays?⠀⠀Yes! When I started collecting it was a nightmare, but there’s still work to do. I understand women consume differently. But, I still walk into boutiques and many models and colourways aren't available in my size. I believed the market shouldn’t be so divided. What @Yoon_ambush is doing has all my respect - it feels like she doesn't think about gender at all, just the story and design.⠀⠀Having such a vast collection, do you find it hard to pick just one?⠀⠀Yes! My Nike Disco Track from ́78 is my most precious pair. There is so much history to that specific model. ⠀⠀We know you're an avid vintage collector, but looking forward, are there any drops you're excited for?⠀⠀Right now, the scene feels like one big waterfall. Release after release after release, which is why I focus on OG models. However, if Nike were to release the AJ1 'Canary Yellow', that’s a pair that I would like to have.⠀⠀What are your current thoughts on Nike retros of late?⠀⠀They are improving a lot! Releases like the Nike Ghost Racer were insane - I was able to snatch pair in L.A for $30. For me, the golden era will never have a decent retro - that's why I love the OG ́s. *Final video was a combined collection with @bluntchygrape shot for @_dashape_.
