Top 10 Sneakerhead List (2020) #2: Essence Carson

Why Essence?

Essence put a pen to paper, to channel her pain into purpose. With her own track titled, “Conversations Pt. 1”, she dug deep into the reality of existing as black woman, in this climate, and what that truly means, on a daily basis. In addition, she has used her voice and platform to advocate for social justice and voting reform within communities. She wears many hats, and still finds a way to come with a crazy Nike collection. Salute to that consistency throughout time, so she definitely had to clinch the #2 spot.

As we continue the great fight, I applaud my brothers and sisters for being resilient. Allies, welcome to the party. There is power in numbers. Where there is equality and peace, there is power. The revolution is now televised.

-Essence Carson (Washington Mystics)
