Essentials: Wendy Lam, AKA OG Style and Sneaker Blogger Nitro:licious
The sneakerhead, who owns more than 500 pairs of kicks, shows off some of her most-coveted must-haves.
Asking Wendy Lam what her favorite sneaker is honestly unfair, but if you really must know, she’ll at least narrow her current rotation to the YEEZY BOOST, Nike Special Field Air Force 1 and Fenty PUMA Creeper. Her kick closet consists of over a whopping 500 pairs; you name the shoe and she probably has it, but such is the case when you’re an OG style and sneaker blogger. Having started her site Nitro:licious 11 years ago before launching Mini:licious three years ago, it’s not hard to recognize Wendy — female figures in this space are few and far between, and she’s one of the first.
So obviously we’re not surprised at all to see that Wendy’s essentials include a pair of sneakers. Nike Air Force 1s in particular because “everyone needs a pair of white-on-white Uptowns.” (Hers are the AF1 Lux “Friends and Family” edition, of course.) However, her heel game is on point too. Counting those never-been-worn Christian Louboutin pumps, she has at least 100 pairs that are reserved for date nights, dinners or special events when she doesn’t have to walk around the concrete jungle that is New York City. Wendy’s handbag and accessories collection is just as rich, as she shares her first Hermès Birkin bag and a look at some of her favorite Supreme jewelry. And speaking of Supreme, she has a lot of that too, including the Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS wallet which hold her Supreme x MTA MetroCard — “gotta take the train in style!” — among other grails. Take a look at the rest of Wendy’s covet-worthy items above.
