Peep the snippets below and be sure to pick up the January 2015 issue of Marie Claire on newsstands now.

GS JOY My boyfriend loves Jordans. I'd go with him to the store, but they would only have little boys' sizes left, so I'd buy all his dream shoes in a boys' 5½.

FEET FIRST I'm trying to have more fun with my wardrobe—and more fun with my life in general. Collecting sneakers is part of that.

AND NOW, YOUR STARTING LINE-UP I own seven or eight pairs of Jordans, two pairs of Nike Air Maxes, a pair of Andre Agassis, and some Liberty London Nike Dunks.

ICE BREAKER Girls talk to each other about fashion, but I don't have conversations with dudes about what I'm wearing unless it's Jordans. You meet a guy, you can tell he's into sneakers, and it's like, OK, no more awkward small talk.
