Here, Schwartz reveals her go-to kicks and the high-end shoes she wears on special occasions.
NUMBER OF PAIRS: I have to actually count everything, but I think about 30.
CLOSET BALANCE: I would say at this point Im 75% sneakers and 25% sandals and heels. Ive really retired my heels at this point. If I bring them out, its on a very special occasion. Im pretty tall, so when I rock a heel its a thing, especially living in L.A.
WHEN IM NOT IN SNEAKERS: Im in a slide, probably my Adidas slides.
GO-TO BRANDS AND STYLES: For sneakers, definitely Nike and Adidas. Im a big Air Jordan girl. Im old school in that respect. And I love the [Nike] Cortez. When I moved to L.A. a couple years ago, I really got into them, so I have a good amount of those. I also love an Adidas Gazelle in classic black. I also just got into Gianvito Rossi.
STANDOUT SHOES: I would say my Air Jordan 1 Royals and Breds. Those are my two favorite sneakers. And on the heels side, I would say a Saint Laurent T-strap heel.
PAIR ILL NEVER GET RID OF:My Jordan Royals. Ive had them forever.
ALL-TIME FAVORITE SHOE: Probably a classic black Manolo Blahnik pump.
FIRST SNEAKER MEMORY: Ive been wearing sneakers forever. When I was a little girl I’d wear Ponys, really old school. Growing up in Puerto Rico I played a lot of tennis. I used to wear Prince sneakers then, too, while playing.
CELEBS WHO HAVE THE BEST SHOE STYLE: Rihanna always. P.J. Tuckers sneaker collection is fire. Aleali May’s game is tight too.
MUSIC STARS CLOSET ID LIKE TO RAID: Rihanna. Shes got amazing style, always has.
BEST PLACES TO BUY SHOES: GOAT, Flight Club online and the New York or L.A. stores, Alife in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Nice Kicks in downtown L.A. has a good variety especially of Jordans [and] Undefeated.
MOST IVE EVER PAID FOR A PAIR: I would prefer to not disclose [the pair because it was] probably more than I should have, but over $1,000.
LEAST IVE EVER PAID: Under $30, for anything from a flip-flop to a sneaker.
FAVORITE TREND OF TODAY: Im definitely all about athleisure. Its really nice for women to be able to look casual and comfortable and add all of our feminine touches. I rock a lot of Adidas. Ive been wearing a lot of the collaborations between Alexander Wang theyre chunky sneakers but theyre fun to wear.
MY EVERYDAY LOOK: A T-shirt, high-waisted pencil skirt and either a Jordan or a Cortez sneaker.
SNEAKERS I WONT BE CAUGHT DEAD IN: Probably Keds theyre not my jam.
TODAYS MUST-HAVE STYLES: Everyone needs a good pair of Jordans, probably a Converse Chuck Taylor low-top or high-top [and] maybe a classic Reebok.
PAIR I NEED TO BUY RIGHT NOW: Ive really been ogling this crimson pair of Jordans, the [Aleali May] Air Jordan 6 [and] Travis Scotts Air Jordan 1 collaboration as well.
