Attending a smaller university like Gonzaga, you frequently see a similar mix of students on a day-to-day basis. As I walk to and from classes amongst the shuffle, I find my gaze on passing student’s outfit and accessories more often than not. Whenever I see this Fashionisto on campus, I can immediately identify him by his fresh kicks. Raised in a family with Nike employees, this week’s Fashionisto knows all about footwear, designers and fashion.
