Women are every day more involved in the sneaker game. It's a matter of fact. Female audience has been left behind by the industry for too long, but women have now the best-growing market share; and are also growing educated and passionate about sneakers. On March 8th the world celebrates the International Women's Day and the best part of sneakers dropping this week are dedicated to women and was meant to underline the importance of this celebration.  

What you will see below is a showcase of how the industry taste for women's for sneakers has changed drastically in few years. No more "Feminine" designs and colorways. Everything has been replaced by strong and elegant shapes with special attention to details and textures. If we can take this as a metaphor so it's definitely a good way to pay homage to women all over the world.

When Air Max day and International Women's Day celebrations unite. The Air Max Jewell is the second women-only AM model ever made. This silhouette, inspired by the infamous Air Max Plus is about to bring AM design straight into the future. The Sci-Fi resembling the shape and the selected technical materials make the AM Jewell really far from what one should expect from a women-only release, but definitely, everyone would love this.

Puma and Rihanna are keeping it bold when it comes to design sneakers. These new "Bow" sneakers feature a really loud design and highly eye-catching details. The shoe, similar to the classic R698, have a silly satin upper with an oversized ribbon on the top of it. This is maybe meant to be an intentional exaggeration of feminine stereotypes in order to reject them and make something new. The sneakers will be available in pink and camo green that also states another premeditated contradiction. It seems that there is way more behind these sneakers than what it seems.

Release Information: will be available at Puma from March 9th.
