A HUGE PROBLEM IN THE SNEAKER INDUSTRY


There's a HUGE problem in the Sneaker industry and I'm on a mission to change that ONE Premium Sneaker at a time!
My name is Janyelle MARIE Milton founder of J Marie Premium Sneakers, a Premium sneaker brand as an alternative to heels.
I started the brand April 2019.
In highschool you couldn't catch me dead in "gym shoes" or jeans. I was the ultimate girly girl and wore heels and dresses. After graduating from College, I settled into Corporate America the downtown Detroit area. My life became parking structures and A LOT of Walking. 

I was then diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and sought a comfortable alternative to heels. I tried different brands but none of them gave me the style and quality I was accustomed to for heels in addition to comfort.

I wasn't apart of the "sneaker culture" waiting on the newest 1s nor was I apart of the "sport genre" waiting for the latest drop.

I'm a middle aged millennial and was looking for something I can wear at the office with business casual wear yet if I wanted to go out I'd still look great! I wanted something that could be dressed up or down.

I wasn't able to find anything.  I was apart of a demographic that was completely ignored by the mainstream sneaker industry.

So I started my own Sneaker brand April of 2019.


Even with the initial success I quickly realized WHY no Sneaker Brand has addressed the demographics I was apart of......the sneaker industry is a MALE and SPORTS dominated industry and lacks diversity in sex, ideas and color!

The Sneakerhead culture and sports footwear was spawn from Male perspectives.

This problem makes it hard to get funding, and that makes it hard to break entry into the industry and gain access to distribution into footwear stores.

Major brands ignore this demographic completely yet steal ideas and designs to make money off it when they do offer a womens sneaker.

So I'm on a quest to change that ONE Premium Sneaker at a time!

I will use the funds to secure my designs by protecting them legally so there is legal repercussion to major brands that take my designs.

Obtain the prototypes of my Sneaker to get them professionally photographed to update my website helping me compete aesthetically with major brands and market to further establish myself as a WOC Sneaker designer in the industry.

Money Matters for Youth X J.Marie Premium Sneakers

📢 Exciting Announcement! 🎉

Mark your calendars for April 17th at 8:30 PM! 🗓️🕣

J Marie Premium Sneakers is thrilled to unveil a hot new product addition, and we're doing it LIVE on our website! 🚀🔥

But that's not all! In the spirit of giving back, for every product sold, we'll be donating $30 to Money Matters for Youth, supporting their mission to empower young minds through financial education. 💰💡

Have you guys heard of @moneymatters1996 ?

It's the brain child of the most compassionate, loving , kind and selfless person I ever met....@gailpmason .

It's a financial literacy program for youth that teaches skills of money management, entrepreneurship, assets, finances, life skills and so much more!

I had the honor and huge opportunity to be apart of this camp when I was just 15 years old!

I met Gail and was introduced to this camp when I was in the 10th grade at South Eastern High School....I had a 1.6 grade point average ( I hated school and rarely went or applied myself). I had no thoughts of college, never even heard of entrepreneurship, definitely knew NOTHING about stocks,bonds, t bills, finances or assets. Don't get me wrong I had great parents but they couldn't teach me about something they knew nothing of.

Gail taught us so lovingly, patiently, selflessly about "Living on 5th Avenue" having 5 streams of income. How to read stock tickers and invest in stocks, she even bought us out first shares! She taught us how to look at all the products we used daily and begin to not just be consumers but stockholders in those brands.She taught us this through a myriad of guest speakers, experiences , activities and trips. She opened and expanded our minds! This camp changed the trajectory of my life.

I ended up going to The University of Michigan and becoming a serial entrepreneur myself starting J Marie Premium Sneakers.

I'll never forget her, the camp and how it changed my MIND thus changing my life!

That's what programs like this do for our youth! I'm an example, proof, a testimony!

That's why I wanted to find a way to giveback to something, someone that poured into me.

On 4/17 at 830pm , I'll be unveiling a new product addition to J Marie Premium Sneakers and that product will be available for purchase at a steep discount on that live to all those in attendance with 100% profit going to Money Matters for Youth.

So I hope that you will join us....
