Matt Powell, the vice president and senior industry advisor -sports at NIKE AIR MAX 90 Cheap NPD, echoes that women have long been neglected in the athletic footwear and apparel market, but that s starting to change with startups like Shoes of Prey and Allbirds. I have described the women s footwear and apparel market and activewear as our greatest failure and our greatest opportunity, so I m glad to see brands are now finally beginning to address this market more aggressively, he says. There are female sneakerheads out there, and they ve been forced to buy boys shoes for the most part. Nike hopes its sneakerhead play will help the company grow its women s business from $6.6 billion to $11 billion by 2020. Other product initiatives in the women s business include more plus-size options, the Nike FE/NOM Flyknit Sports Bra, and the Nike Pro Hijab, which won the Fast Company Innovation by Design Award for General Excellence in 2017.
The Unlaced preview in Paris started with a look into Nike s archive through highlights of women s sneakers from NIKE AIR MAX 90 Womens the past 40 years, beginning with the shoe that started it all the Nike Senorita Cortez, the female version of the Nike Cortez, a minimal white sneaker with an orange swoosh, which was released two years chen20141209x after the male version in 1974. The archive also includes the Nike Airmax 97 LX Swarovski, which dusts the curves in the original Airmax 97 in a coating of sparkly Swarovski crystals, and the Nikecourt Flare BHM Serena Williams that pays homage to Black History Month through black and white marbling that symbolizes harmony and a metallic gold swoosh.
There s a shrewd strategy at work. Sales of athletic footwear generated $19.6 billion in sales in 2017, growing 2% over the previous year, according to the market research company NPD Group. The women s market overshadowed men s with sales growing by 5% from 2016. So far sneaker culture has always been about the guys but with the women s sneaker market growing and actually outpacing the men s that s changing, says Clare Varga, active director at trend forecasting agency NIKE AIR MAX 90 Mens WGSN. Social media has played a key part in this and now female sneakerheads like Aleali May [an influencer who is the second woman to collaborate with the Jordan brand] and Jess Gavigan [an influencer and founder of online retailer Small Feet Big Kicks] are really establishing themselves as influences.
ÿþFor years, the sneakerhead market was a boys club. Everything centered on men s tastes and men s sizes testosterone all but oozed from sneakerhead blogs like Highsnobiety, Hypebeast, and Complex. Women, myself included, were often left out when it came to finding exclusive editions in their sizes. But with the women s sneaker market growing 5% in the last year, athletic brands are paying attention. Just look at Nike, which unveiled a female-focused retail concept called Unlaced during Paris Fashion Week.Unlaced will debut to the public March 27 as the primary online destination for Nike sneakers for women. Shop-in-shop locations will appear this summer. The concept takes the sneakerhead formula new styles, increased product offering, customization and NIKE AIR MAX 90 Sale aims it squarely at women.
