Sneakerheads

Sneakerheads, sneaker addicts, sneaker. Who knew sneakers could be a good investment. Josh Luber creator of Campless has me stunned. Need you to watch the Ted Talk below to fully understand how easily Josh has broken this down.

 

So what exactly is a sneakerhead? By formal definition a sneakerhead is a person who collects, trades, or admires sneakers as a hobby. Along with being able to distinguish between real and fake replica sneakers.

The first example that comes to mind of a sneakerhead is the character Turtle of the HBO show Entourage. Last year in 2015 a sneaker convention: Sneaker Con was created where sneaker heads could buy and sell the most sought after footwear on the market. I love that this subculture exists and potentially profiting off there collectors item. What I have learned in my years of fashion is a wearable item is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. I guess we should be thanking ebay for helping create this platform.
