The Female Celebs Leading the Sneaker Charge


Sneakers are at the forefront of style and fashion these days, but that isn’t simply because we see celebrities like Jay-Z, Kanye West and A$AP Rocky donning the latest kicks. Female celebrities are also choosing to make sneakers a big part of their everyday style, and are even making an impact in the shoe design department.

Take the first lady of G.O.O.D. Music, Teyana Taylor, for example. This month, adidas will release her collaborative sneaker called the Adidas Originals Harlem GLC. Influenced by high fashion and made for both male and female sneakerheads, the shoe perfectly embodies both Teyana’s style and the important role kicks currently play in the fashion world. What girl wouldn’t want to rock a pair of kicks designed by a fellow female sneaker lover?

Another female in the sneaker spotlight right now is Rita Ora. Known for hits such as “How We Do (Party)”, Rita is also revered for her head-turning style and enviable sneaker collection. She has been spotted wearing everything from the Air Jordan 11 “Playoffs” to the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue,” and continues to bring out both old and new releases on stage and off. 

When it comes to female musicians, it doesn’t get bigger than Rihanna right now, and she has never been afraid to take the stage in some of the hottest kicks. In fact, Rihanna was one of the first people seen rocking the Nike Air Yeezy 2 while simultaneously rocking a slew of screaming fans. From Jordans to Converse, Rihanna can consistently be found sporting her favorite kicks with a variety of outfits that prove the versatility of kicks in a woman’s wardrobe.

Overall, female celebrities are making just as many waves for wearing sneakers as their male counterparts. Whether sneakers act as the focal point of your outfit or simply a comfortable choice for weekend errands, you can’t go wrong sporting the latest kicks from brands like Jordan, adidas and Converse. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up setting sneaker trends like Rihanna, Teyana and Rita.
