Lisa Barlow-Weber, who set up London’s first women-only sneaker store, Kickslove in Deptford, shares her favourite fly kicks for females
1 Air Max 1 Bred
Bred stands for black and red – a colour way synonymous with the famous Air Jordan 1 created by Michael Jordan. The Airmax was one of the first ever shoes to expose the air-cushioned sole unit in the shoe.
2 Chuck Taylor All Stars
The classic chucks came out back in the 1920s. Wear them with anything, dressed up or dressed down. It is known as the shoe that revolutionised basketball, named after the American basketball player and shoe salesman Charles Hollis ‘Chuck’ Taylor.
3 Fenty X Puma Rihanna Creeper
Rihanna is a game changer in the creative world – as a singer, an actress, a fashion designer. Her first design as PUMA Women’s Creative Director mixes the iconic suede with a little bit of punk and a little bit of rebel, inspired by the NYC punk rock style.
4 Women’s Nike Air Jordan 5
This style is inspired by an aeroplane, with a translucent outsole and a black upper, and reflects light. The original Air Jordan I sneaker, produced by Michael Jordan in 1984, was released to the public in 1985.
