PRESS: FootWear News (Cover Story) – “Kick Starters” featuring Vashtie, DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito, Ronnie Fieg and Jeff Staple – Written by Gerald Flores


Special thanks to Gerald Flores and FootWear News for giving me the honor of gracing their cover with legends; DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito, Ronnie Fieg and Jeff Staple. So far, it’s the top story on WWD.Com…please Margiela or Alexander Wang don’t make any announcements or debuts today – hahaha.

This is my second cover (but, this is the first I’ve shared so far), the first being a solo cover shot on the cover of Maco’s (a Trinidadian magazine) September issue.


Here are some behind the scenes shots of the shoot. It was pretty funny. At first, they staged me on the floor – laying on my side like a Vogue cover. It was a nice idea, but it was so not me…and amongst the guys, it made me look silly.

This is me probably voicing my concern that I look like a bird, laying on the ground…DJ Clark Kent totally said the same thing and voiced his opinion for me!vashtie_footwearnews_11_20135 vashtie_footwearnews_11_20136

Finally, the photographer asked me to get to the top of the ladder and voila! Here it is. Shooting with these legends (and also friends) was amazing…and hilarious.
