Q & A with Pedro Salazar

by Denitza Leon


Robert Wayne Footwear employee Pedro Salazar from Gurnee Mills, Chicago shares his photographer style with us. See him transition to the other side of the lens in style with Clarks, his rosary and Nikon gear.

Q: How many pairs of shoes do you own? Which pair is your favorite?

A: I currently own 32 pairs. My favorite shoes to wear are Clarks.

Q: What's the last piece of clothing you purchased?

A: Huge fan of Virgil Abloh's "Closet". We're both from Chicago, but that's not why I like his style or why I love shopping at his boutique. His versatile style and fashion sense made him Kanye West's personal fashion advisor. 

Q: How has your style evolved over the last couple of years? 

A: Oh its changed a bit. The base and fundamentals are still the same yet keeping up with society and its fashion trends. I now have more mellow, casual, solid colored yet fashionable style.

Q: What is the most treasured item in your closet?

A: My rosary. I know that might sound a bit too Hispanic but I love my rosary. I like to wear it as a fashion accessory at times, but for the most part, it's safe at home. 

Q: Any secret talents of hobbies? 

A: Well I love to photograph. It doesn't have to be an actual photo session for me to be shooting with my Nikon. My work is pretty broad so I can't say I focus on on single subject.

Q: Describe yourself in three words.

A: Positive, goofy and motivated.

Q: What is the most outrageous thing you've ever worn?

A: Oh my...Google JNCO Jeans. I used to wear those back in middle school. I had a whole collection of 'em.

Q: What is the most expensive style items you splurged on? Was it worth it?

A: I would have to say my Louis Vuitton monogram bandanna. I paid over $200 for that little thing. Lost it the week after. Totally not worth it.
