THE. BIGGEST. CLOSET. WE’VE EVER SEEN. Solely dedicated to shoes. And if you know the sort of business we’re into, that’s a big effing deal.

Let’s back up for a sec, shall we? (We know it’s hard but hold up!) It was during our last New York jaunt that we ventured outside of our comfort zone, to the outskirts of the city, down a looooong, winding road until we were welcomed by a sprawling estate at its dead end. And let’s just say we weren’t disappointed.

It went a little something like this: as we made our way inside, we were greeted by New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and his fiancée, Elaina Watley. You may remember their adorbs proposal that made its rounds on every news-y website ever (as in, it went insanely viral). Yeah, they were just as loving in person, to the point where we were envious of more than their Balmains.

The duo led us up their vast spiral staircase right up to that mammoth closet we mentioned earlier. But what else would be fitting to house a sneakerhead collection of Air Jordan 3s and Bin 7s, Nike Air Yeezys, and limited edition Buscemi proportions? We sorted through the outsized collection of our sneaker dreams, pulling out so much KITH, Saint Laurent, Ovadia & Sons and Givenchy it was hard to keep track of. After all of that, it was Watley’s turn and her wardrobe of CHANEL, Dolce & Gabbana, and jewel-toned Manolos, (to name a few), we couldn’t wait to document. But the entire process wasn’t without its sentiments, like the leather-bound wallet gifted by Cruz’s late father and the “Kennedy” necklace Cruz custom inscribed so that he could wear his daughter’s name every day. Then, it was Kennedy herself, who practically stole the show and made more than one cameo into Cruz and Watley's portraits. We'll admit, it definitely sweetened the entire deal.
