Meet Cassidy

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 Cassidy, an awesome mom and the managing editor of CNK Daily. CNK Daily is a black owned brand serving women in street wear and sneakers.

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

It means cultivating an inclusive space for women’s voices to be heard. I love that the message is so clear and that we’re understanding the power of a unified front in sneaker/streetwear spaces. Our stories, passions, and experiences have helped mold this space for years. We aren’t new to the game.

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

Wow, there are sooo many amazing women doing things to elevate the sneaker community. If I had to choose one today, I’d say @imsimplyB. She is an OG when it comes to sneakers and has created some amazing products for the sneaker community. Most importantly, she uses her platform to bring women to the forefront and keeps it real with real advocacy for seasoned and novice sneaker lovers.

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

I am a big proponent of representation in the sneaker community. There are endless ways that sneakers create community and representation has to start in the board room. From there, it can trickle down to management and more creative roles within sneaker brands. Women are so multifaceted, we can’t be pigeonholed to one thing in sneakers. The more young Black and brown girls that can see themselves in sneaker jobs and campaigns, the better we stay rooted in connection and authenticity for the long haul.
