Like husband Dwyane Wade, actress Gabrielle Union is trying her hand at the sneaker business.
In an interview with The Coveteur, fellow NBA wife Faith Rein Haslem confirmed that she and Union are in the process of opening a women's sneaker store together.
“Gabrielle Union and I are working on a women’s shoe store,” Faith Rein Haslem told The Coveteur. “It’s in the very early works, but we’re definitely taking steps in planning. Baby steps, but that’s definitely the goal.”
However, it doesn't sound like the new space, tentatively being called Borrowed From the Boys, will be just another spot to buy trendy sneakers — Faith and Gabrielle are thinking high-end.
“It’s going to be a concept store/women’s sneaker store, but with a fashion angle,” she said. “It’s not necessarily about having Jordans per se, it’s going to be more the fashion-y thing. I think nice sneakers are a mainstay at this point.”
While there's still details to be sorted, Rein says the store will be located in Miami.
