SoleDeVida grew up around a family of sneaker heads, and particularly looked up to her female cousin. This cousin owned a pair of 1995 OG Red/Blk 11s, and SoleDeVida fell in love with the kicks at first sight. She was 14 by the time she got to own her very first pair of Jordans, the 1998 OG Red/Blk 14s. With hundreds of kicks nowadays, she and her sneakerhead husband are addicted to the lifestyle. It has even infected SoleDeVida’s career moves, as she is currently a female sneaker reviewer on youtube that fits in with the guys.
