Meet Mo

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 Mo, also known as @mobumbbbaaa on IG. Mo never disappoints with her amazing looks and her unique style! So let’s see what respect female sneakerheads means to Mo!

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

Respecting female sneaker heads means giving us a fair shot. I learned in the last year or so that a lot of releases weren’t dropping in sizes fit for most women and I was mind blown. @ttfinlay has created a huge platform to bring awareness to this. I wear a size 10.5W/9M so I have a fair shot to cop just about every release and I couldn’t believe this was not the same for all my home girls. If a sneaker doesn’t drop in GS sizes most women can’t even get them and that makes absolute zero sense to me. I think that’s the first step to showing mad respect for women in the sneaker community. The other part of it is respecting ALL women in the sneaker community including queer, masculine presenting women. The queer influence in sneakers needs representation. I don’t see us enough. I would like that to change.

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

Sheesh, they’re so many for so many different reasons. @kimmiskiart and the way she designs and portrays sneakers through art is insane. @_artdealher does animation and graphic design to depict black women in sneakers and it’s fire. @djshante is creating sneakers from scratch. Like sewing materials together with her hands to make them, it’s crazy. @chicinsneaks is combining storytelling and nostalgia to display her love for sneakers. @styleandsnks has developed a platform to highlight the black queer influence on sneaker culture and that resonates with me greatly. @sneakervibesonly is giving us a safe space to discuss mental health as it relates to the one thing we all love, sneakers. @hergrails are hosting events and major sneaker experiences for women in sneakers not only in the Houston area but across the country. @cnkdaily is uplifting women through sneakers and streetwear. I could go on and on. @ticaradevone @keiakodama @she.landry @thicklaces @sneakersisterhood @sheilathedesigner just to name a few! There are so many women in the sneaker community who influence and inspire me.

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

I think there’s this one misconception that women just started being heavily involved in sneaker culture and that’s gotta change. There are some OG women in this game that have been in the trenches, camping, and bringing awareness and designing sneakers for years. I’m a rookie in this game and I’ve learned so much from and about them. And they deserve flowers and opportunities just as much as the OG men. I think we’re starting to see that shift and I’m just grateful to be here.

These words from women in the sneaker community MATTER and I believe one of the ways for us to receive more RESPECT is to hear from us what It truly means and what it looks like to us! I hope you enjoyed this and learned alot!
