Mr. Nick Wooster has been called an Internet superhero and the “alpha male of American street style.” Some fans even call him Woost God. He’s got upward of half a million followers on Instagram, and photographers hound him at Fashion Week and Pitti Uomo. It’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about style.
Mr. Wooster can also boast (if he were so inclined) 30 years of experience as a fashion director and creative consultant at highbrow retailers around the world. So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about luxury.
Which is why his new collaboration with Brooklyn-based sneaker company GREATS is so exciting. From luxurious Italian craftsmanship to Instagram-worthy designs, these bold, playful shoes are made to be enjoyed. We caught up with him between promotional appearances for the Nick Wooster x GREATS collection to ask him a few questions about shoes, style and what every man needs in his closet.
