I met Warren Creavalle last year at an event that a mutual friend was hosting and always thought he had a cool street style. We spoke a little about fashion and him being from Atlanta, Ga, since I use to live out there for a few years, figured we had a little in common. Cool and humble is how I describe Warren. Last year he won “Young Player of The Year” (U-23) for the Houston Dynamo, which is a major accomplishment.
Wish him all the luck and success in his future.
1. At what age did you realize you wanted to become a professional soccer player?
When I was in elementary, I probably would have told you that I wanted to be a professional soccer player when I grew up. However, when you get to high school, the school kind of preaches how unrealistic your dreams of becoming a professional athlete are, and you need to decide what field you want to join. So with that, it wasn’t until college that I really started looking at the professional level as the next step.
2. Is there a soccer player that you looked up to growing up?
I always liked the playing style of attack-minded defenders, along with the beauty Brasil played with, so I enjoyed watching Roberto Carlos play.
3. How would you describe your style?
It really depends on the day and how I’m feeling at the time. I like to have a versatile wardrobe. I take bits and pieces from different styles I like i.e. menswear, street-wear, athletic, Americana, and skate even, and with that see what works for me and what I feel comfortable in.
4. In your opinion, which city has a better fashion sense Atlanta or Houston?
From what I see, especially with men’s fashion, I would say Atlanta. It seems like they care a bit more.
5. Where do you shop when your in Houston?
I always check out The Classroom; I would say that’s my favorite shop in town. Also, if I’m at the mall I like to stop by J. Crew and Club Monaco. And from time to time I like to go by Premium Goods to check out their sneaker selection.
6. Which teammate has a good sense of style that you appreciate?
There’s a few on the team, but I would say I appreciate Señor Servando Carrasco’s style the most. It comes off as an effortless and authentic west coast cool.
7. What would be your biggest dream come true with soccer?
Definitely to represent my national team.
8. What are some of your staple pieces with fashion?
My staple pieces have been raw denim and runners for a while now. And if my hair was shorter you would catch me with a hat on majority of the time.
