We've had an eye on Aleali May's Instagram for a while now. Aleali provides a great source of style inspiration for female sneakerheads, as she's able to merge even the most outlandish silhouettes into a feminine wardrobe. Unsurprisingly, she's also captured the attention of a whole host of brands: she graced the runway at Kith's SS18 presentation, sat front row at the PSNY show, and is curating sneaker looks for Barneys.
However, May is now truly coming into her own in the sneaker world, debuting a Nike Air Jordan 6 in a 'Millennial Pink' colourway. This Jordan 6 is coated in the now-ubiquitous Millennial Pink shade, making it a truly 'millennial' shoe. While it's not exactly clear what role May played in the shoe's design process, the fact that Nike selected her to preview the shoe on social media is a sure sign that a bright future in the sneaker industry awaits.
The sneaker is currently only available as a Nike 'Friends and Family' exclusive. If these pink make-ups haven't already arrived in your mailbox, you're probably out of luck when it comes to securing to the release. However, the shoe has generated a significant level of hype on social – we're hoping that this will encourage Nike to start working on a wider release.
