I have been waiting a long, long time to say this in a post and truly have it be relevant, but now thanks to Downtown’s sweetheart Va$htie Kola, I can finally say…LADIES FIRST!
As any good sneakerhead who hasn’t been living under a rock on the moon this past week knows, the Nike Jordan brand released its first-ever collaboration sneaker designed by a female, a pair of Violette classic Jordan 2’s. Designed in Vas$htie’s signature violet color palette, the all-suede sneaker also features splashes of deep purple along the trimming of the shoe. As per custom, Va$htie has gifted us all with a bit of silver– silver accents along the shoe’s midsole pay homage to the Jordan brand’s 25th Anniversary.
Can we say gorgeous?! Yes, yes we can. Downtown’s Sweetheart has created a jaw-dropping merge of all things feminine and brand’s the classic masculine athletic silhouette, making this pair of J’s an ideal compliment to the modern woman’s lifestyle.
Here’s to future Jordan collabos to come from the ladies, and a big congrats to Va$htie for finally giving us the perfect occasion to say LADIES FIRST and actually mean it!
Recently, videographer and webseries creator MaestroKnows caught up with Va$htie in the last final few days before the release of her Jordans. He not only spoke to Va$htie about what designing a Jordan means to her, but even got her to share the shoe with a lucky few New Yorkers before its big release. Check out the episode below, and peep the cameo from 13th Witness too!
