Unlike its predecessors, “Issa Rae By You,”the sneaker line gives customers the opportunity to design as well ” Each shoe can be customized with words and phrases that motivate me.” Rae wrote. Some affirmations written on the body include; “Get Out Of My Way” “Run With It”, “Do It All!” “Focus,” “Celebrate the Wins,” “Take Up More Space,” and “Walking in Your Purpose.
“It was all about empowering the next generation to get up and DO what it is they aspire to do,” Rae said in a statement. “So the team took some of my personal affirmations and approaches to life, and put them into the design of the shoe.”
