The Trailblazers Collection

Celebrating the women behind the sneakers – and the culture they ignited.

Together with Breanna Stewart & Vashtie Kola, we’re unveiling an unprecedented collection to spotlight trailblazing women and the iconic kicks that wouldn’t exist without them.

Breanna Stewart

Breanna Stewart has been rewriting women’s basketball record books for over a decade, winning multiple championships, MVPs, and Gold Medals in the process. Following in the path of trailblazers like Sheryl Swoopes, “Stewie” will become the first WNBA player to have a signature shoe in 10 years. An activist off the court, Stewie has campaigned for equality in women’s sports coverage, supported the BLM movement with her WNBA colleagues, and fought for LGBTQ causes as a proud member of the community.

Vashtie Kola

In 2010, Vashtie Kola (Va$htie) became the first woman (non-athlete) to design a pair of Jordans. While it was a magical life-changing moment for her, it was frustrating it took so long to happen. To Vashtie, the achievement was not hers alone but truly belonged to every female sneakerhead. Vashtie is a creative force beyond the sneaker space; holding director, filmmaker, artist, designer, creative consultant, and DJ titles.

A retrospective featuring the kicks and women who’ve impacted sneaker culture.

AIR MAG Back To The Future by Tiffany Beers

Tiffany Beers reached into the future to engineer this one-of-a-kind self lacing sneaker inspired by the film “Back to the Future, Part II'' and released in 2016. The Air MAG is considered by many the most important sneaker of the 21st century. Tiffany is also behind many other iconic shoes like the Air Yeezy 1, Tom Sachs's Mars Yard, and HyperAdapt 1.0.

Nike Air Swoopes II by Sheryl Swoopes

“Give me black, white, red.” Swoopes paid no mind to the industry’s “shrink it and pink it” standard when designing the first female signature athletic shoes. In 2018, Nike finally answered the wishes of many sneakerheads and re-released the Air Swoopes II you see here. In total, Swoopes had six models throughout her time with the brand.

Reebok Shaq Attaq 1 by Judy Close

All the credit to Judy Close for the world’s first-ever Shaq sneaker. Designed by Close and loved by all, Shaq Attaq 1s originally released in 1992, became a viral sensation in the sneaker community and beyond with appearances in video games, on trading cards and even across movies and television.

Air Jordan II Retro x Vashtie Kola

Vashtie holds the crown as the first-ever woman with an Air Jordan collab. The dusty lavender hue of these sneakers was carefully selected to give the classics a sense of androgyny. For her, the shoes also send a powerful message - that if a girl who had grown up not being able to afford Jordans could go on to be the first woman to design a pair - that any girl (or person) could do it.

Casablanca x New Balance 327 by Charlotte Lee
