Passion, community, and sole. Three pillars at the heart of the sneaker community. The key elements that brought women like us together.
Being outnumbered can be discouraging. It makes some of us think we’ll never have a chance to shine. Not us. Instead, the misrepresentation forced us and many women to do shit our own way. The right way. A subculture has risen.
We’ve studied the greats, the men and women who came before us. We add our own unique touch to this, blending masculine and feminine energy. We made it our own. We’re multi-faceted. Resilient. Smart. More than just pretty faces in a pair of Js.
When I say we, I’m talking about you—the shapeshifter, go-getter, the ones who strive to live a life that means something. We challenge the status quo. We’re shifting the way women are portrayed in the sneaker/media industry. The statistics, though saddening, inspire women like us to collaborate and make magic. We are making this our own.
Happy International Women’s Day. I hope you take the time to celebrate yourself. You deserve it.
First, I'm tryna get the woman to understand the dynamic power and the spiritual energy. Do you realize how magnificent you are? The god that created you is a divine architect that created the moon, the sun, the stars, Jupiter, Mars, Pluto, Venus. We are not only sexual beings, we are a walking embodiment of god consciousness. — “We Deal with the Freak’n,” Solange. When I Get Home.
