MY SHOE ARSENAL: QUINCY MOORE

The designer's favorites include picks from Gucci, Common Projects, and more.

In our series, My Shoe Arsenal, we go into the closets of celebrities, athletes, and tastemakers to see their footwear collections. In addition to rare and hard-to-find pairs, we want to see the shoes that get them through their fast-paced days and workouts.

The New York City design studio Knowlita is known for producing graphic apparel worn by the likes of LeBron James and Emma Stone. For founder Quincy Moore, fashion is always at the forefront of his mind. His line includes t-shirts, hoodies, and hats, and while he has yet to design shoes, Moore is definitely passionate about them. “Having a great pair of shoes on makes me feel confident,” he says. “When you’re putting your feet forward through the city, through life, you’ve got to have them in something stylish and comfortable at all times.” 

He even credits sneakers with helping him network. “When I meet someone new, I always check out their shoes,” he says. “And when two people meet and recognize each other’s shoes, especially if they’re rare, it’s a bond-building moment.” Moore, who currently own 50 pairs of his own, shares the shoes he loves most.
