Lamiez Holworthy gives an emotional story behind why she’s obsessed with sneakers.
The DJ said her mother could not afford to buy her expensive things growing up as a child, and she dared not make such request, as an understanding child who knows her mother was a single parent.”
“I posted that I’d share why I’m so obsessed with sneakers(especially Nike) and this is it. Once upon a time, I knew that my mom couldn’t afford to get me expensive kicks coz she was a single parent so I just didn’t ask. I was in grade4 n all my peers had Di Cortez Le Di Chango,” she wrote.
Seeing how she desired to have a good sneakers but couldn’t get it, Lamiez worked hard in other to satisfy her desire.
“As young as I was,I knew not2ask my mom 4anything expensive. I was 10 in grade 4-I remember my peers going on about their new kicks and I lied about having a pair(stupid right) It haunted me 4 the longest time. I promised to work hard enough 2 afford any pair I’d want,” she added.
Lamiez can now afford anything she wants due to hard-work, and she buys the sneakers now for her 10-year-old self.
I’ve been obsessed with kicks ever since… and now? Now I do it all for the 10 year old me.
