Another week gone by and another new batch of footwear jobs that you can go after to make your passion your profession. This week we are focusing on entry-level jobs in retail. It may not seem like the most exciting way to start but many of the people that work in more experienced roles in footwear design, sneaker media, and other areas of the sneaker business, all started their journey as a retail employee. The thing about working in sneakers is that you often times know about the shoes and stories you’re passionate about and those that made the biggest noise from your favorite sneaker blogs. That’s really only a small percentage of what really drives the entire footwear business. With that in mind, take a look at some of the footwear jobs available right now in retail.
