“Fast, easy, snappy”—brand new Dark Star Ambassador Patty Tiu shares how this pair matches her fast-paced lifestyle.
We’ve known Patty Tiu as one of the hottest names in the club scene with her one of a kind mark on mixing and matching rhythms as a DJ. For quite some time now, everyone who’s frequent on go-to party destinations would rave about having her play a set at any fete. But aside from doing music, Patty also balances her time as a spinning class instructor, athlete, and soon-to-be Mrs. Thompson. Through all these, Patty Tiu has a trusted pair she would always come back to: sneakers.
“I think it goes hand in hand,” Patty shares when asked how she balances everything she does. According to her, everything she does is interconnected with music. Even as a self-declared “frustrated athlete”, she has to incorporate music while working out. Needless to say, her spinning class stint is nothing but perfect for her personality. She later reveals, though, that she’s currently doing Jiu-Jitsu—even competing for it on March! The intensity of her personality only reflects on her lifestyle. “I’m such an intense person,” she adds. “[Now,] I can put that aggression into something physical.”
Easily, we had to ask her what her style staples are. Because we have to admit, her look is always on point whenever she’s playing sets or even during a workout session. There has to be a secret behind it. But what’s most surprising about her answer is the fact that all her needs are basics. “I cannot live without joggers,” she starts. “And Dark Star [especially] for deadlifts, because it’s super flat,” she continues about how every Converse sneaker variation suits her everyday look. “[Sneakers] are easy to match into anything. May it be a one star, dark star, or all-star.”
To Patty, what’s most important about dressing herself up is putting on something that can easily transition from a day look to a night dress-up. This is where her Dark Star pair fits best. “I like it [because] I don’t have to think anymore—comfortable, fast, and easy.” She also adds that it reflects her perfectly, being a one-star kind of person herself. Somehow, she adds, her Dark Star pair is a way for her to reclaim her status as someone who never really got to fit in anywhere.
With a lot of things happening for her within the year and the year that follows (we’re talking about her wedding), Patty Tiu only has sneakers as the pair she trusts. You might catch her in the scene mixing beats, in the gym, or in the studio creating original music for her to share to the world—all in her favorite Converse pair to go with.
