Toronto, long slept on, is finally getting the attention it deserves thanks to Drake, the city’s unofficial ambassador. But T-Dot offers a lot more than just the OVO crew. The gauzy backbeats booming out of the city owe themselves to the melting pot of disparate cultures T-Dot naturally hosts. (Roughly 50 percent of its population is foreign born.) To see just how fly the city can get, from a sneaker and style perspective, all you have to do is pull up Anna Bediones’ Instagram page.
Among the lot of sneakerheads and influencers, Anna’s one of my favorites because of the unassuming style she proposes with every post. She’s far from a “try hard” and the sneakers she shows off are accented with an innate curatorial touch–ease of style and confidence spreads wildly when comfort is the focal point.
Her love for sneakers stems from her father’s love for the game, and as she told me, “He put me in sneakers as soon as I could wear shoes. He’s heavily immersed in basketball culture; that really influenced him and he passed it on to my brother as well, and I just kept it.” The only thing stopping her from owning all the heat is that “small sizes are hard to find.”
Her pictures are the only things that hold still. To challenge herself, she runs comfortably through the 6 and onto a high pedestal as an influencer.
Read on as Anna takes us on a tour through the way she puts it all together. Here’s How @atothebed Stays Killing the Instagram Comp.
