If you thought her fastball was fly, wait until you see her sneakers.
The teenage pitching phenom throws a 70 mph fastball, starred in a tear-jerking Superbowl commercial and landed the cover of Sports Illustrated. And throughout it all, Davis sported her red-and-blue Philadelphia Taney Dragons uniform—and is now using the color palette for a good cause. The teenager is launching a new line of M4D3 sneakers, of which 15 percent of its proceeds will be donated to underprivileged girls around the globe in connection with the Because I’m a Girl initiative.
“I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool!” says Davis of the collaboration. “If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler. Designing shoes with M4D3 is exciting and I wanted them to support Because I am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future.” [source]
If you know me, you know I’m a sneakerhead at heart. Both Mini-me and I will be copping.
What? Maybe someday…
…I want to be able to throw my curveball like Mo’Ne Davis, too.
