One of our goals with this site is to bring some positivity to sneakers. Yes, it’s easy to get upset because “there are too many new sneakerheads”, “it’s impossible to get new releases”, “it’s just not the same as it used to be” or any of the countless other complaints that fill up Twitter on a Saturday morning. We get it. We miss some of those “how it used to be” things. Reality is, the glass is definitely half full when it comes to sneakers, the business, the community, the culture and the lifestyle. You’ve just gotta look at it from the right perspective. That said, check out 10 Reasons The Future Of Sneakers Is Brighter Than Its Past.
