Behind The Lens: J Marie Premium Sneakers


My name is Janyelle Marie Milton founder of J Marie Premium Sneakers!

There is a place in Le Marche, Italy, where 100 years ago, modern shoe-making was invented. It’s called The Shoe Valley, and it’s been the world’s oldest and best shoe manufacturing district in the world since 1901. There are no finer hands in the field.... J Marie premium sneakers are conceived in Detroit handcrafted in Italy.

In High School you couldn't catch me dead in "gym shoes ", I LOVED heels! I loved the feminine way they made me look and feel. I tried different gym shoe brands that were either masculine, childish or too athletic and none of them fit the style that I was accustomed to.

As I settled into corporate America and moved into downtown Detroit, my life became parking structures and A LOT of walking! Then came the health issues, a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and losing vision in my right eye. Quickly a heel that was once the cornerstone of my look became the cornerstone of my pain! The constant body aching, weight gain and feelings of discomfort had me looking for an alternative to heels.

So I ditched "gym shoes" for good and created my own PREMIUM SNEAKER brand as an alternative to heels for premium women like myself . I took the first initial of my first name and my middle name and created J. Marie Premium Sneakers! I didn't want to compromise style, comfort or quality! So now you don't either! I offer PREMIUM women sneakers that can be dressed up or down.

Our Premium Sneakers are 100% Italian leather with premium finishes like faux zebra, crocodile and python in vibrant colors! We are a slow fashion and sustainable organization! Our women Sneakers range from athletic, fashion to High fashion so there's something for every Premium woman! Our versatile sneakers will be sure to give you a Premium look whether you want to dress up or down! J Marie Premium Sneakers are Style| Quality| Comfort| Color!
