Born and raised on the O’ahu island of Hawaii, that alone would make Natasha Tsuji somewhat “unique” among her peers already. But that isn’t the reason and neither is her amazing collection of kicks. What makes Tsuji one very unique female sneakerhead is her tenacity in getting those rare kicks. She camped out for Nike Foamposites, What The Kobe, Air Jordan 11 “Concord” and etc.., often the only girl among the boys and men. She did so much of it in fact that her mother joined her, out of concern.
After resettling in Las Vegas last year, Tsuji sought out others with same amount of interest and enthusiasm over sneakers. It didn’t take long. Along with the 8,000+ members on the Facebook group that she started female sneakerheads back in Hawaii, her Las Vegas chapter grew to 13,000 in no time. Now, with a new sense of comradery and shared interest, Tsuji is on the hunt for even more kicks.
