Meet Jazerai

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 Jazerai , a woman who not only has a resume longer then a lot of people in the sneaker community but she also makes every effort to drop gems on us when it comes to understanding how things work in the sneaker industry through not only her knowledge but the knowledge of others through the spaces she hosts on Twitter spaces. Jazerai is the founder of True To Size, an agency that is dedicated to design brand strategy and experiences that amplify marginalized voices and speak to the heart of the communities. Jazerai has been featured in Root 100, Footwear News, Business Insider, just to name a few! Let’s see what Respect Female Sneakerheads means to her!

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

Respecting female sneakerheads means allowing us the freedom to exist as we are, without anyone else’s feedback, gatekeeping or opinions.

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

I look up to the women behind me who grind it out everyday for something greater for us all.

You.
Alicia Pinckney.
True to Us.

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

I can’t wait til they stop calling us female sneakerheads and just see us as us.

These words from women in the sneaker community MATTER and I believe one of the ways for us to receive more RESPECT is to allow others including these brands to hear from us, what It truly means and what it looks like to us! I hope you enjoyed hearing from Jazerai and learned alot! Please be sure to check out her agency True To Size!
