Meet Allyson

Allyson Felix is the most decorated track & field athlete of all time with 11 Olympic and 20 World Championship medals. Despite her success, she was still forced to make a choice between her career and her family when her longtime sponsor offered her a 70% pay cut after she became pregnant.

This ignited a passionate fight for justice, not just for Allyson, but for all women athletes. When said sponsor refused to extend protections against performance penalties in the face of childbirth to all women athletes on their roster… Allyson left. She took her passion and her fight with her.

A Movement To Celebrate

Allyson’s voice sparked change, leading to enhanced maternity rights and fairer treatment for female athletes. This advocacy is why Saysh exists—founded by Allyson and Wes to champion women’s specific needs. Saysh sneakers are crafted with our unique femiformityFIT technology, which embodies our commitment to a future where women’s footwear is as distinct and deserving as their journeys.


Our Founders

As the most decorated track & field champion faced a unique challenge—what racing spikes could she wear while aiming for her fifth Olympic team? Allyson found herself confronting an industry blindspot: a lack of consideration for women's unique needs in footwear. Her advocacy had already sparked significant changes in sports, fueling her drive for the next chapter. She embarked on a bold journey to address this gap alongside her brother and business partner, Wes.

Together, they created Saysh—where style meets functionality in performance sneakers designed for women, by women. Saysh isn't just about shoes; it's about walking in the footsteps of a champion who dared to dream differently and fought to make those dreams a reality for all women. When you wear Saysh, you're embracing a story of resilience, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of equality and excellence. Join us on this journey.
