Who We Are

Welcome to femalesneakerfiend! We’re a movement, a crew, a website, an ever-growing number of girls and women crazy about our kicks. You might see us on the prowl for our “holy grails”, on the forums talking day and night, out at all the sneaker events, or home cleaning our kicks obsessively. We’re everywhere!

This website was started by me, Lori Lobenstine. My dream was to have a place for female sneaker fiends worldwide to have a home, meet each other, show our styles, and have an impact on both sneaker culture and the sneaker industry. In just over 2 years, we’ve done that and more, thanks to all of you who’ve visited and brought your pics, ideas, energy and inspiration. Don’t sleep on the ladies…we’re growing all the time!

It’s not just my site anymore. It belongs to all of you, and it’s co-led by a great squad of crazy sneaker heads. We wouldn’t be where we are without this crew:

If you’d like to join our informal “staff” or just contribute in a particular way, just let us know!
