Meet Vashtie Kola, the First Female Air Jordans Designer

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.

      Um. When did the Spice Girls’ huge shoes thing come back? This is unfortunate.
