Top Sneakeristas Share The One Person They’re Style-Stalking

That girl you follow, whose style you’re obsessed with. Yes, her. Wouldn’t you love to know who she’s style-stalking?? We would. So we asked. Envisioning a daisy chain of Insta love, we started with one of our favorite sneaker-loving ’gram goddesses: Miss Alie Layus, and asked her to share her one must-follow sneakerista (and why she loves her). Then, we asked the object of Alie’s digital affection for her must follow...and, well, you get the picture.
 
What we wound up with is a little black book of on-point style stars, each inspired by the next. Not only do these ladies serve up full looks, they don’t just wear sneakers—they live in them. Scroll on to let some cool girls intro you to some cool girls.

 

It could be said that our Instagram account is a veritable hunting ground for rad ladies to follow. Check it out.

Kicking it off: @alielayus

“LA-based photographer Alie Layus’s account is like a SoCal dream sequence, all sunny daze, palm trees, vintage rides, hotels, motels, Holiday Inns, and herself and her model pals living life to the fullest in—almost always—classic sneakers.” —The_ONES

 

Alie’s pick: @alexiskenzie

“I just love [Alexis]! She’s so adorable and has really versatile style...she’s a little bit tomboy, but also pulls off super-soft, feminine looks so well. She has a cool Instagram flow where she posts three photos at a time of each look, which always makes her page really interesting.” —Alie Layus

 

Alexis’s pick: @klarakassman

“I love girls with attitude and I think that's heavily evident in Klara’s style. Her shoe collection is shown throughout her Instagram. Even with a classic like Converse, she makes you want a pair so you too can be as effortlessly cool as her.” —Alexis MacKenzie

 

Klara’s pick: @chanelxevans

“[Chanel] low key always keeps it clean!” —Klara Kassman

 

Chanel’s pick: @janaeroubleau

“I consider [Janáe] a must follow because I can always respect a woman who is sick with the tomboy style; she’s great when it comes to picking out men’s clothes and knowing how to mesh in really amazing women’s pieces, like a unique Chanel bag. She’s also one of the main women in the Undefeated fam, so her shoe game is crazy.” —Chanel Evans

 

Janáe’s pick: @jcheyenne_

“Janelle is not new to this, yet very true. She is no imposter. I don’t believe J receives the credibility she absolutely deserves. Follow her if you’re interested in keeping up with any current releases and to be educated on nostalgic styles, retros, classics, and vintage sneakers. She does this! BEEN doing this!” —Janáe Roubleau

 

Janelle’s pick: @sambram

“My girl Sam has crazy style! She can literally make any shoe look 10x better with anything she pairs it up with. I’m always here for females who are about the culture and she goes a great job representing for the girls who are really about this community.” —Janelle Morgan
