Natalie White is the founder and CEO of Moolah Kicks, a women’s basketball footwear brand.

She spent her childhood growing up playing basketball in New York City at school, streetball, and AAU. When she would walk into footwear stores, there was never a sneaker option made for her as a girl hooper. This inspired her to create Moolah Kicks.

Moolah Kicks is the first women’s basketball brand, built by and for female ballers. White identified how the lack of women’s basketball sneakers had both a negative social implication but also a negative performance effect since women’s feet are different from men’s.
