When I first thought of the Kick Game Proper idea, I knew I had to reach out to the homie Khyree. After following him on Instagram for quite some time, I was always drawn to his diverse collection and how he put his outfits together. He’s always had an effortless swag, where he lets his kicks do the talking. Without further a do, I present to you Khryee.

DNS : When did you get into the sneaker game?
K : I’ll put it like this, the shoe that got me interested in sneakers was the Air Jordan X ‘Powder Blue,’ back in like 3rd grade. I officially started collecting in 10th grade. The pair that started my collection was the Nike Dunk High Navy/White.
DNS : How big is your collection?
K : Just about 40 pairs. It’s dropped a lot over the years. Had to let a lot go. Anyone who collects knows how that goes.
DNS : What are some of the pairs that you consider ‘grails’ in your collection?
K : The 2004 Air Jordan Retro XII Black/Red. The leather is so…butter, and the Nike Dunk High “Cassette Tape” because everyone asks what the they are and where I got them when I sport them.
DNS : Are you a specific sneakerhead?
K : No, my stock is very eclectic. I’m a Jordan head first, but my collection ranges from Dunks & Blazers to Jordan’s and Max’s with some ACG’s and Trainers thrown in. I love all styles equally, plus you can’t wear J’s with everything.
DNS : What’s the furthest length you’ve gone to get a pair you’ve wanted?
K : I’ve never really gone to get a pair I’ve wanted…yet. But, I have been caught in a wild situation before. I went out on Black Friday with some friends and the plan was to cap off the night by copping the French Blue XIII’s. On the way home from the Wrentham Outlets, we ran out of gas and the car battery died. All bad. After we got gas, it took 6 attempts to find someone to give us a jump. To make matters worse, one of my homies had his pair on already. Luckily we made it back in time to get in line, otherwise I would have been the asshole that let the team down.
