Lena Waithe Developing New Series On Sneaker Culture ‘You Ain’t Got These’


Sneakerheads everywhere can rejoice because Lena Weithe is developing a new show dedicated to sneaker culture called You Ain’t Got These. 

Yesterday (Oct. 16),  Jeffrey Katzenberg and his short-form video company Quibi announced that they were authorizing a new unscripted series conceptualized by Waithe. The show’s premise is to explore “beneath the surface of sneaker culture and explore how sneakerheads and the dealers and companies they buy from are influencing class, gender, race, and politics,” according to a statement issued to Vogue.

The shoe-themed show is just one lens, Waithe has chosen to explore roads of intersectionality, whether it be race, politics, or LGBTQ+ rights. The 34-year-old has also promised to deliver fans a story about the addictive personalities of some sneakerheads who yearn to get their hands on some of the most sought-after kicks.

Details about this series are still unclarified but Dr. Dana Sole an alias of Lena Waithe’s could be expected to be at the center of this culturally significant series.

Apart from Waithe’s Showtime series The Chi, The Master’s of None actress has been working on a Boomerang reboot series along with original cast member, Halle Berry.
