The Sneaker Influencers
Trainers typically aren’t influencers, but don’t tell that to this NBA skills coach, who landed a deal with Puma and delivered a collab between the brand and his apparel label, Color Blind.
Mike “Upscale Vandal” Camargo
Although not signed to a brand, Camargo worked with Puma often throughout the year, including conceptualizing a campaign to bring coolness and edge to its Motorsport racing line.
The E! News correspondent further cemented her position as a female force in footwear with appearances on NTWRK and through an engaged audience on her own social media platforms.
The former Reebok collaborator joined forces with a different label, Jordan Brand, to deliver a bold and sought-after take on the Air Jordan 1 as part of its “Fearless Ones” collection.
Although he collaborated with others, the designer’s biggest moment was the Nike LeBron Icon release, a high-end silhouette that effortlessly blended fashion and function.
After collaborating on multiple Air Jordan 1s, the model and stylist switched gears for the March release of her Air Jordan 6 dressed in millennial pink.
Ray Polanco Jr.
The social media influencer has leveraged his platforms to grab Foot Locker spots, most recently “The Drop” weekly Instagram programming, and launch his own shoe with Converse.
The BMX legend parlayed Jordan Brand campaigns and daring social media videos — always wearing the hottest sneakers out — into a modeling career, signing with DNA Model Management last month.
