A year ago today, with the help of some incredible friends, I launched SneakerHistory.com in hopes of creating a place that brought back some of the things that have gone missing from this sneaker thing over the decades we’ve been collecting.
A year later, we’re still at it and that in itself is something to celebrate. Because we aren’t paid by the brands or reselling shoes out the back door like most in this business, paying for the site has been challenging. Sure, we make a few cents here and there with ads and affiliates on the site but those barely cover the costs, if they do at all. With that in mind, I want to thank everyone who has checked out the site, left a comment, contributed or supported in any way. It means a lot to me and I appreciate you for helping support keeping my dream a reality.
To help celebrate our first year, I had a small basic coffee table (6-inch square hard cover, 200 photos from our Instagram account) photo book to remember it by. Our cost is $35 plus shipping. We are asking a minimum of $50. If you’re interested in purchasing one to help support the costs of the site, email us or PayPal us [email protected]
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery as they will be printed based on number of orders.
