Two leading names in the industry can now add “shoe designer” to their resume. Nike has enlisted New York-based nail artist Madeline Poole (second from left) and London-based WAH Nails salon founder Sharmadean Reid (third from left), along with model Paloma Elsesser, filmmaker Grace LaDoja, stylist Camille Garmendia and writer Phoebe Lovatt, to curate new color palettes for the Nike Cortez Classic sneaker. The women, who make up the International Girl Crew, a global collective of friends started by Reid, collaborated on a design to reflect their love of travel, culture and community. The style is available in color palettes inspired by the group’s favorite cities—Los Angeles, London and New York—and the shoes are available now. To purchase, go to nike.com
