It's easy to pick out Renée Snelson's favorite things. Take a glance at large-scale murals from the street artist (who goes by XORS), and it's obvious: The woman loves graffiti and shoes. This fall, the shoe designer shares her favorite Timberland footwear to take her along her modern trail through the streets of New York while she creates shoefiti (get it? shoes + graffiti) masterpieces that are equal parts fashion and female empowerment, inspired by the collection.

As you might expect, Snelson's personal sense of style is super on-point: Think tomboy-meets-feminine, with soft, cozy pieces abutting edgy accents for a cool, DGAF air. She partnered with Timberland to share her go-to footwear looks (and her street-art-inspired takes on them).
