About the brand and style of J.Lorenzo
I wanted to create a brand that represented inclusion and diversity. I designed a Motivational Sneaker called J.Lorenzo. My mother always motivated me to keep pushing and believe that anything you put your mind to is possible. There is a motivational quote on the inside of each shoe to inspire and uplift my customers who may also need that extra boost of support. J.Lorenzo’s are Blue, Yellow and Beige. I support people with visible and hidden disabilities, so I want everyone to enjoy these motivational sneakers and understand people with disabilities have so many ABILITIES.
