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.
