@mrsneakersavage, it was a day of checking out kicks & apparel from Westchester sneaker lovers and businesses such as 2nd Nature, the only skate shop in Westchester with a full Nike SB account! Being the 1st event of its kind had its downside too..the turnout wasn't as great as expected, but people did show up, which is what mattered! Mr. Savage wants to do more planning for another show sometime this fall, so keep your eyes & ears open for the next show! Check out MORE PICS.

Jordan Brand Signs Basketball Standout Maya Moore
Official Press Release:
Record-Setting Champion Joins Jordan Brand Roster as First Female Basketball Athlete
BEAVERTON, Ore.–Today, Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE), announced the signing of Maya Moore, two-time NCAA Women’s Basketball National Champion and college basketball’s all-time leader in games won as a player. One of the most decorated athletes in the history of collegiate sports, Moore becomes the first female basketball player to join the Jordan Brand.
“Not only has Maya proven to be a prolific winner on the court, but her hunger and determination to make an impact off the court makes her a valuable addition to the Jordan family. We look forward to working with Maya as she carries her success to the next level.”
Recognized as one of the greatest collegiate women’s basketball players to ever play, Moore led the University of Connecticut Huskies to back-to-back NCAA titles in 2009 and 2010. During her tenure at UCONN, she re-wrote college basketball’s record books by leading the Huskies to a 150-4 record, including an NCAA Division I basketball record 90-game win streak.
“I am thrilled to welcome Maya Moore into the Jordan Brand,” said Michael Jordan. “Not only has Maya proven to be a prolific winner on the court, but her hunger and determination to make an impact off the court makes her a valuable addition to the Jordan family. We look forward to working with Maya as she carries her success to the next level.”
Boasting numerous career accolades which includes earning two National Player of the Year awards (2010, 2011), three Academic All-American awards (2009-2011), four National All-American awards (2008-11), and most recently being named the top overall pick in the 2011 WNBA draft by the Minnesota Lynx, the 6’0” forward will join a renowned lineup of Jordan Brand athletes highlighted by Derek Jeter, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Andre Johnson among others.
“As a student of the game, it is a dream come true to align myself with a brand that has a rich history in sports,” said Maya Moore. “Like most kids, I grew up idolizing Michael Jordan and continue to work relentlessly to reach his iconic status on the court. I’m truly motivated to take my career to the next level as a member of Team Jordan.”
Go Maya!! And Jordan Brand, can you actually put a little advertising behind these? No one can ever find Taurasi's or Swoopes or any other female signature basketball shoe by Nike...
Time to show and prove ladies! Last year we had our first ever female finalists, and this year I think a female designer can win it all! Don't be shy, if you like to design sneakers (or t-shirts) jump in and compete. Winners get to spend 3 weeks at Nike HQ with a professional mentor working on their designs...
Contests available for high school and college students and include designs for Nike, Jordan and Converse.
Let's do it! Gotta show the guys they can't sleep on the ladies =) Click here for all the info...

The Nike Sportswear Global Women's Footwear Product Line Manager position is closing this Wednesday! Please apply if you're interested!
For more information on the position and what they're looking for, check out our post on FSF.
You can also go right to their job posting.
Some folks think that females are getting out of the game, but quite to the contrary: I keep hearing about new female sneaker fiend websites! The latest that came to my attention is KICKmySOLE, designed and hosted by the talented duo of Andra Williams and Camille Bowers.
We caught up with Andra Williams this week. What qualifies this fiend to run her own site? Well, for starters it's commitment--she's been in the game for a minute and she knows her kicks. And for seconds, she's got the swag and attitude. Here's a sneak peak into the interview:
"One thing mainly is of course because I am 34 years young, many have said I should think about stopping buying kicks by now. In my rebuttal I say, 'You should start thinking about minding your own business now!'"
