What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

NEVER COUNT US OUT. We belong just as much, if not more than any male in the sneaker world. Working in this industry I see it first hand. They don’t respect us enough. Our opinions & creative aspect matters and can lead us so much further.

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

There’s so many women in the community that I look up to but my favorite is @Br00klynBetty she’s such a down to earth person & her style is unmatched. All the girls are literally out here killing the game.

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

Make sure the authentic sneaker girl gets the recognition she deserves. Often times the true female sneaker heads get overlooked and we end up with representation from women that have no clue what’s going on. We then get mislead & misinformed when this happens. Brands need to come and speak with the women that actually influence the culture not just celebrities & popular women on ig.

What does respect female sneakerheads mean to you?

Personally, it means we deserve seats at allllll of the tables. Content wise, board room, design and storytelling. Respect our ideas, our sneaker closets and us as women in general. Afford women the same opportunities to enhance the brands that we patronize so heavily. We shouldn’t have to prove why we deserve space here.

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

I pull inspiration from so many women, but the ones that are top of mind are Kimmiski @kimmiskiart, Passion @_artdealher, Mo @mobumbbbaaa, Janyne @sneakervibesonly, Ny @solelyaboutnyyyy, Lee @iknowlee, Kia @thenotoriouskia.

There are so many talented ass women in this space that offer more than a good outfit. Don’t get me wrong, we love a good lewk..but I also appreciate how these women appear to incorporate their authentic selves into their content. This space is filled with women that empower each other, use their gifts and serve as inspiration to others along the way. I love to see it and I’m glad I’m gang!

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

As a creative, we are multifaceted and all have so many different interests. Don’t put us in a box or have a limited expectation about what we bring to this space. Every woman is unique in her choice of expression, style and content. Being a Black woman, we know this culture would not exist without us. Appreciate the flavors we serve on a regular!
