10 Of The Best Female-Designed Sneakers Available On Ebay

The sneaker industry might be a male-dominated space, but these female designers prove eye-catching designs are a woman’s skill.

by | Jul 2, 2021

If there was any doubt as to the state of our sneaker-obsessed world, you need only peruse the images from Australian Fashion Week and any other Fashion Week that’s since followed. Once relegated to the confines of the gym exercise class alone, sneakers are now considered unequivocally cool. Whether you’re dressing for the office, an event or going out (on the rare occasion social restrictions actually permit you to socialise with others), sneakers are the shoe of choice for most of us these days. And with countless collaborations between some of the fashion and sport industry’s biggest stars and the sportswear giants behind the sneaker brands, there’s never been more choice when it comes to slipping into some well-cushioned shoes. 

That said, as much as we do love our sneakers, finding women-driven designs can be a tricky task. The sneaker and street style industry has long been a male-dominated one, with countless drops seeming to shine a spotlight on the male stars within the industry. But now, intelligent, creative forces are changing this and proving that there’s a strong female contingent operating within the space, too. 

From Chitose Abe and Yoon Ahn to Alkali May, women are becoming increasingly involved in the design and construction of sneakers and it’s their designs that we’re now lusting after. If you need any evidence of such a fact, just take a look at these designs we’ve found on Ebay. Whether it’s a collaboration or general release, these women are paving the way forward for some of the most exciting moments in sneaker culture.
