Actress Gillian Jacobs from Yahoo’s Community and HBO’s Girls, appears in the January issue of Marie Claire magazine, where she reveals her obsession with Nike Air Jordans.
On her love for the Chicago Bulls:
I grew up in Pittsburgh, but my whole family is from Chicago. Michael Jordan and the Bulls were everything.
On her shoe collection:
I’m trying to have more fun with my wardrobe—and more fun with my life in general. Collecting sneakers is part of that. They look really cute with dresses or jeans. You can wear them with just about anything. They make me feel much cooler than I am.
On just some of the shoes she owns:
I own seven or eight pairs of Jordans, two pairs of Nike Air Maxes, a pair of Andre Agassis, and some Liberty London Nike Dunks. I’d love a pair of Yeezys, the ones that Kanye West made for Nike.
On her favorite pair of shoes:
They definitely get worn. I got a little nervous when I realized my Black Cement 3s were getting beat up. But life’s too short to not wear them.
On talking to guys about shoes:
Girls talk to each other about fashion, but I don’t have conversations with dudes about what I’m wearing unless it’s Jordans. You meet a guy, you can tell he’s into sneakers, and it’s like, OK, no more awkward small talk.
