Created by Allyson Felix, America’s most decorated Olympic athlete, the Saysh One is no ordinary sneaker. It is meant to better fit a typical female foot, which is evident in its design. Constructed with microsuede and woven jacquard fabric for extra breathability, it also features foam padding and molded heels, resulting in an everyday shoe which Oprah calls “comfortable, supportive and light”.
Beyond comfort and fit, the Saysh One is representative of much more; Felix created the brand as a way to disrupt maternity leave policy in the sports space. During her pregnancy in 2018, during which she experienced complications, Felix reportedly faced a pay gap compared to her former sponsor, Nike, and published an op-ed in The New York Times This caused Nike to change its policy on pregnant athletes.
Oprah sums it up best: “When we are in her shoes, we realize what it means to stand up for yourself.”
