I have to be honest, I don’t pay as much attention to women‘s fashion, but being a sneaker head, I do like it when a girl can rock a nice pair of sneakers. Not every girl can do it. Every girl looks good in heels – that’s a given – but not every girl can look good in fresh kicks.

I focus all the way on the club. That’s why my music sounds the way it does, with the 808, heavy kicks. Every aspect of it is about the club, so I don’t really care about the person who’s listening on an iPod.

Kicks to the legs, they’re not very cool. They’re brutal.

Before a show, you might have aches or pains, or it’s a bad rainy day, or it’s too humid. We all complain about stuff. But… how do I put this poetically?

I decided to grow my hair out during college, and it’s kind of stuck ever since. Even when I thought about cutting it or trimming it, common sense kicks in, and I don’t think the fans would recognize me; people wouldn’t know who I am. It would almost be like Santa Claus losing his powers.
I first learned about kicking under pressure in 1996, my rookie year with the Patriots. I was signed as a free agent by a team that already had Matt Bahr, one of the best kickers around.

My martial arts came a lot from my uncle, who actually taught martial arts through the military. He was a black belt in tae kwon do, but also, he used a lot of military-style fighting where it’s not the high kicks or anything like that. It’s basically defeat your opponent as fast as possible.
Brian Tee
I like when a guy wears ripped jeans, has a loose-fitting V-neck top and has a pair of kicks. You can’t go wrong with a suit either.

If I’m not barefoot, you’ll probably find me with a pair of New Balance on. And I’m not one of those hipster-jump-on-the-band-wagon-ironically-cool NB fans. I’ve been rocking those kicks since they were true nerd shoes. Since the ’80s, yo! Word.
For a long time when I was working to get a job and in OVW to create an image to get hired by WWE, they kept saying, ‘we’re looking for the next Trish Stratus.

Joely Richardson
If you’re talking to an architect, he can look at a blank piece of paper, and once the initial design is there, the formula kicks in. Each room should have something unique and different about it – much the same way that in a song, every eight bars or so, a new piece of information should be introduced.
Ryan Tedder
I realize judges don’t understand what the hell kicks are doing.
