TH: First off can we get a little intro for the people who may not be familiar? Name, Age, Homebase & Occupation?

VINCE: Vince Lozano, 28, West San Fernando Valley CA. Occupation... we'll keep em guessing if they don't know :) lol

TH: Anyone new to your Instagram feed should know ahead of time your a huge Disneyland lover. Where did the love of Disneyland come from initially?

VINCE: As a kid, we always went at least 2 times a year as a family.. 10+ with cousins and stuff... I've always loved it, but I have a child now, who I really want to enjoy it to the fullest. I'm a big kid, but I have a kid so it's my cover ;)

TH: So the question has to be asked... if you had to pick one, Disney or Sneakers? 

VINCE: At this point in life... I'd pick Disney, I LOVE my sneakers, the pure JOY Disney can bring to my daughter every time, just makes that decision easy.

TH: Your shots on Instagram not only are creative showing more than just sneakers but they are very high quality. What do you use for your photography setup when you take your shots?

VINCE: Firstly there are a lot of people who I admire with the sneaker photography, one for their shots, and two for the tips they've given me.
My current set up is a Nikon D7100 and my go to lens is a 35mm f/1.8, usually my shots are from a low perspective, so I use my wallet, or my cell phone for my mount. haha

TH: Your also a big Disney Vinylmation collector. What would you say is your favorite out of your collection if you had to pick just one? 

VINCE: Just one is tough! I'll go with a tie for favorite an ETO Tokyo Japan Exclusive Abu from Aladdin, and my Park 11 Series Genie who took me forever to find!

: What has been your favorite release of 2013 so far? 

VINCE: Sneaker release... tough as this has probably been my slowest year yet purchasing.. but I really like the Hyperflight Max Hologram and the Jordan DB V (which I'll never own) unfortunately

TH: What future release do you have marked on your calendar as a must pickup? 

VINCE: Kobe's are my weapon of choice, so the Kobe 9 will be what I go after next and starts up the sneaker passion again. 

TH: If you were a Nike exec for the day what would be the one shoe you would retro immediately? 

VINCE: Zoom Kobe 1, 81 Points, can be in size 14 again, I just need a pair to own a "piece of history" (watered down released to the public history) but history nonetheless

TH: What was the first shoe that sparked your love of sneakers and why? 

VINCE: I remember two pairs in particular I got as a child in 91/92 (6 and 7 years old) the Black/Infrared VI and the Black/Red/Purple VII.. I was hooked from there, always wanted! Didn't always get. But what I did get, I loved. 

TH: Besides sneakers and Disney what is a guilty pleasure most people would be surprised to know about you? 

VINCE: That is a very good question lol. I'm a Dr. Pepper addict, but mostly (not a guilty pleasure) but my biggest enjoyment thus far in life has been being a dad, I love being able to "brag" about my child as parents do. I love taking pictures of life's moments, especially with my little one growing.

TH: Any last words for the people out there? 

VINCE: Thank you to those who appreciate my work, thank you for following on Instagram, thank you for sticking with me even when I stopped flooding your pages with sneakers. You'll always get 100% realness from me! A huge thanks to Alan for contacting me for this and following me and appreciating my "work"

TH: Where can everyone find you on social media? 

VINCE: You can find me on Instagram here: for sneakers and all else @v1nsanity3, for absolutely NO sneakers here @v1nsanity3_photography
