“My name is Dexter and I am from South Africa.
I hate stereotypes and I hate fitting the norm, so I’m always looking for ways to kind of break that and one of those ways is through my sneakers.
These are my favorite because they kind of speak to me and they’re really out there and that’s the type of person I think I am.
Buying sneakers is kind of my indulgence.
I paid $90 for them, cash.
It was a good purchase, I think.”
Dexter currently is in his second year at Amherst College in western Massachusetts studying dance, theater and creative writing. Purple is the school’s principle color.
