If you haven’t already spent hours enviously obsessing over her dope outfits on Instagram, meet Aleali May. The model and image consultant has been making her mark on the fashion world styling big names like Kendrick Lamar, Lil Yachty, Otmara Marrero and Tinashe. Now, she’s making her first foray into design. On Instagram, she announced on Tuesday that she created her first pair of “Millenial Pink” Air Jordan 6s.

May, who self-identifies as Spanish, Black and Filipino, is the second woman ever to design a sneaker for the brand. (Vashtie Kola, a video director and artist, was the first. Her limited-edition lavender Ladies’ Air Jordan 2 Retro came out in 2010.)

The sneaker is light pink with Infrared accents on the sole, tongue and top of the heel.

The start of something great @jumpman23 "Millennial Pink" VI's — for my friends and family🙏🏽

Unfortunately, May’s design is an exclusive Friends and Family edition, but here’s hoping it’s released to the general market soon.
