Little League World Series sensation and one of our favorite young athletes, Mo’ne Davis, is now channeling her awesomeness into helping others. Teaming up with M4D3 (Make A Difference Everyday) Mo’ne has created her very own sneaker line, with proceeds from the sale of the shoes going to benefit Plan International USA’s Because I am a Girl initiative, which seeks to aid girls living in poverty in developing countries.
“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. If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler,” says Mo’ne in a company press release. “Designing shoes with M4D3 is exciting and I wanted to support Because I am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future.”
In addition to the collection being inspired by Philly Little League team color schemes, including Mo’ne’s own Taney Dragons’ colors, her sneaker also pays tribute to her love of the game with top-stitching detail that resembles a baseball and a heel tag that proudly sports her now signature Throw Like A Girl line.
Priced at $75, the limited edition sneakers come in four color combinations (blue, white and red; pink, black and white; white, blue and red; and light blue with burgundy and tan), and are available in sizes 13, 1, 2 and 3 for children and 5-11 for women.
Planned for a national release in June, the collection is currently available for pre-order at M4D3. The special Taney Dragon Team edition (light blue, burgundy and tan) will be available for pre-order next week.
