Our plan was simple: Get a group of really creative, intelligent, strong and beautiful women together, and make something kick ass. When we decided to partner with Zappos' new concept "The_ONES," celebrating classic sneakers, we knew it had to be for women, by women, and about women — and we wanted to accomplish this unapologetically. That's why we love the hashtag: #TOTALLYSPONSOREDBYZAPPOS.

So we tapped women who are all bosses in their own right. From Charli Howard, the body-positive model activist, to Pia Arrobio, the creative director of LPA; from No-Holds Barred artist Alana O'Herlihy to the power DJ Pamela Tick, all of these women are living their lives intentionally with pride and conviction.
