13-Year-Old Mo'ne Davis Launches Her Own Sneaker Line to Help Girls in Need

Remember Mo'ne Davis? The ridiculously poised teenager who broke barriers last summer by being the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series? Well, in addition to being the star of one of the best (and all-boy ... except her) Little League baseball teams in the country, a Baseball Hall of Fame-er, the star of an upcoming Disney movie, AND an honor roll student, Mo'ne is now releasing a sneaker line that supports kids in need. This girl rocks.

Mo'ne teamed up with the brand MADE to design a colorful line of women's and girl's sneakers. Part of the proceeds will go to Because I am a Girl, an organization that helps lift 4 million girls in the developing world out of poverty by getting them better access to the education, skills, and support they need.

Not to mention that the sneakers are totally cute, complete with all the bright colors and baseball stitches that we'd want from a girl like Mo'ne. 

There are a total of six styles in Kids' and Women's available for pre-order right now for $75. They're scheduled to ship out in mid-June -- just in time for summer.

Mo'ne has been killing it on all fronts lately. She got a lot of media attention after her Sports Illustrated cover last August, and she's put it all to good use. Her message is that girls shouldn't be afraid to play sports with boys, and they should choose the games they want to play, not the ones they think they should play.

Obviously, that's something we think all girls should hear, and it definitely rings true way beyond the world of sports. Mo'ne's proof that the age-old "follow your dreams" advice actually works, and to say that's just inspiring is a huuuuge understatement.

And on top of all this, her memoir, Remember My Name, came out last week. Oh, yeah, did we not mention that she has a memoir? And she's only 13 years old? She does, and it carries more of the same message.

This girl has an arm of steel and a heart of gold ... and we can't wait to see what she does next.

Will you be buying Mo'ne's new sneakers?
