Her Shoe Preferences
Billie reveals that she hates girls' shoes because they are "f***ing stupid" and has always preferred men's shoes because they are thicker and chunkier. On top of favoring men's shoes over women's shoes, she talks about how she loves shoes that are "out there" and commit to being different, stating that "people are such haters on stuff that's different because we're automatically like trained to think that anything that's a little bit not what we're used to is ugly." And her unique style goes far beyond just shoes. Billie talks about how when she was younger she would buy clothes at Target and then customize them at home.
Why She Loves Jordans
In the video, you'll see that some of Billie's favorite shoes of all times are Jordans - a preference that she attributes to none other than RiFF RAFF, yes RiFF RAFF. She talks about how RiFF RAFF's song "Tip Toe Wing in My Jawwdinz" was her first introduction to the now iconic shoe line. She even shares the story of her finding an old, beat up, pair of Jordans in a thrift shop when she as only around 11 years old.
