Felix was an absolute stud during the 2012 Olympics, winning three gold medals in one of the best performances we’ve ever seen in track and field. Now 28, and the winner of four Olympic gold medals, Felix probably won’t reach the heights (err… speed) that she once did, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t still stuntin’ on the ‘gram.
Felix is constantly traveling to exotic places, constantly seeing the world, and constantly rocking fresh kicks while doing it. Just in the past few months, she’s been wearing the Concord XI, LeBron 11, Kobe 8, and the Grape V. She’s a true sneakerhead.

That’s amplified by social media, where fans get a window into an athlete’s off-the-field circle. And in fact, while stars like LeBron and Neymar and Kaepernick are interesting to follow on Instagram, it’s actually the ladies that make use of its full potential. There aren’t as popularity; they aren’t mobbed wherever they go; and so it stands to reason that their Instagram accounts offer a closer look at their lives.
Today, we’re counting down 10 of the best female athlete follows on the ‘gram.
