Nike Hyperjab (Marlen Esparza Pe)
Boxing boots are usually austere war-ready leather lugs that aren't meant to impress anybody. It's unfortunate, really, when you consider the objective of boxing is to have your opponent at eye level with your shoes – it would be a final act of charity (or one final ego flex) to at least give them something decent to look at with their bleary eyes. In the sneakerworld, women are getting a great selection of options because they can nab the super small men's sizes and brands also drop a bevy of gals-only colourways. In the feminino boxing territory of this same sneakerworld, though, the pickings are slimmer. Most head-thumpers have to slosh around in men's boots – and if you've got little feeties, then that's gonna change your whole game up for the worse. American Olympic bronze medalist Marlen Esparza is one such sufferer of success, and she got chopping with Chef Tobie Hatfield in the Nike Design Kitchen and cooked up the new girls-only Hyperjab.
