Olympian Allyson Felix has fire in her belly as an advocate for fellow mothers who are athletes, record-breaking speed in her feet, and the guts of an innovative entrepreneur who was unafraid to create a product.
Felix is a six-time gold medalist who “is the most decorated U.S. track and field athlete of all time,” according to the Olympics.
But before competing in the Olympics, the athlete and entrepreneur designed “a lifestyle sneaker designed for and by women” under her brand called Saysh. Additionally, “a community-centered lifestyle brand that creates products for, and by, women” was also created. However, when it comes to the sneaker, Felix wanted to create a comfortable, elegant and “athletic inspired” product with feminine shapes, Vogue reported.
