Meet Monika

RESPECT! That is what women deserve in the sneaker community so my goal is for you to meet some of these women via my blog so you can get an understanding on how they feel. There are 3 major questions that come to mind for this topic:

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

Who is one woman in the sneaker community you look up to and why?

If you could change one thing about how women are treated and/or perceived in the sneaker community, what would it be?

Who else is better to learn from then the women within the community? Today we will hear from Monika, a woman who not only has an amazing sneaker collection but also a nice vinyl collection; she provides her followers with a lot of history on old school music artists

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

Women are passionate about the sneakers just like men and we should be given props and well deserved respect. Always give encouragement to a person, no matter where the person comes from, what’s their life situation, their profession or financial status. Everyone deserves to be a part of this community if true passion and love are shown. Everyone has their own pace and they shouldn’t compare to others.

Who is one woman in the sneaker community you look up to and why?

It’s easier to name five women than just one. I’ve met so many inspiriting women in this space. They made me feel welcome. I have a sense of belonging. Each woman is unique and different. They are being authentic in representing their spirits, life stories and giving support to others as well. One of them is Kiah @simplykiah with her SNKR facts. Giving us knowledge while showing off her awesome sneaker collection. I love Kiara @chicinsneaks and her sneaker content. She has an amazing storytelling ability. Kai Nicole is very passionate about sneakers and her brand @sneakermess. She’s a host of Sneaker chat. I love that she includes others from the community in her IG lives. Janyne @sneakervibesonly is an amazing woman. She’s a host of Good for the Sole Convos on IG. She always shines a light on the importance of mental health. When mentioning advocates for mental health, I have to mention Key @key2ursole She’s a phenomenal collector. I love the versatility in her collection and how she’s not afraid to be her true self.

If you could change one thing about how women are treated and/or perceived in the sneaker community, what would it be?

I would change the treatment female sneakerheads get from men who just hopped on the sneaker trend. All they care about is getting the latest heat. They get surprised when you show the knowledge they didn’t know existed.
