MY SHOE ARSENAL: NATE BROWN

The creative force behind Beyonce’s tour shares the sneakers that keep him on the go.

In our series, My Shoe Arsenal, we’re going into the closets of celebrities and athletes to see their sneaker collections. We want to see the footwear that gets them through their workouts, whether they’re runners, weightlifters, or both. Plus, their everyday favorites and the pairs so special they'd never take out of the box. First, we featured Kelsea Ballerini. Next up, Nate Brown.

Brown founded creative agency Studio Institute in 2013 and has quickly developed an impressive portfolio: The agency worked on Alexander Wang’s SS16 runway show, directed the art for four of Kanye West’s shows in 2015, and developed the narrative and overall look and feel of Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour to name a few projects. And though his schedule may get a bit hectic, exercise is the one thing that Brown does not sacrifice. Even though it means waking up at 4:30 a.m., he works out daily. “I drink a whey protein shake and head to the gym for an hour and a half,” he says. His routines includes a mix of HIIT, Olympic lifting, and the occasional run. But he isn’t only a self-proclaimed fitness junkie; he’s also a sneakerhead. With one-of-a-kind and rare models, Brown has a collection as eclectic as his workouts.
