It took awhile, but Nike finally has their first-ever female Air Jordans shoe designer. Vashtie (whose personal site spells her name with a dollar sign a la Ke$ha) is a New York City-based handbag designer and music video director. As for her love of sneakers? Her bio states “Imagine if Louis Vuitton had a daughter who lived on the Lower East Side – she’d be rocking a luxury handbag and a fly pair of kicks.”
As for that fly pair of kicks? Here’s a photo of Vashtie posing with her pair of Air Jordans, which go on sale today. It’s kind of hard to tell from this picture, but the shoes are purple.
