This week marks the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah's passing. I still remember the exact moment when I heard of the tragic accident that took her life and I still remember how surreal it all was. Her death was something that not only shocked her family, friends, and fans, but the world.

Fifteen years ago, Aaliyah was a star for our generation, and in many ways she still is - remaining ever so relevant and an iconic presence for new and old fans alike. In honor of her memory, we've selected a few of our favorite sneaker Aaliyah moments. From her tomboyish youth to the gloriously beautiful young woman she blossomed into, Aaliyah's style endures. Take a look below.
