SneakHER culture is in full effect during International Women’s Month. In today’s fashion society, women’s kicks have a special place in our heart. In what was once a male dominated industry, Queens have made their mark in the sneakerhead universe! Women have created a realm where they can express individuality, elevate and create a unique vibe.
Nike has built strong bonds with renowned designers Melody Ehsani and Aleali May. Both have put their own twist on OG Jordans such as the retro high top 1’s, the first original WNBA athlete’s wear and Jordan 10’s.
Melody Ehsani Be Like Mike? Be Like Me!
In honor of Women’s History Month, Ehsani paid tribute to the ladies of the WNBA and the anniversary of classic film, Love and Basketball. The “Me” OG Jumpman’s catchphrase is “Be Like Mike? Be Like Me!” This women’s collaboration truly celebrates Girl Power. With its detailed stitching of a cherry, which symbolizes fertility, abundance and protection, Ehsani’s nostalgic touch is key.
Model and Louis Vuitton ambassador, Aleali May has been a trailblazer in the fashion community. Her retro colorways and LA feels, in true form, embodies pop culture. May currently has 3 epic collaborations that have sold out in minutes. Her most unforgettable 2018 release with WNBA star, Maya Moore will always be remembered as another historic merge with the WNBA.
