Was taking a deuce the other day and realized that I’ve been in the sneaker re-sell business for about 3 years. Technically longer if you count my teenage years in school, but to be fair, I’d consider the last 3 years was when I considered it as a legitimate business. Now I know the term re-sell hasn’t resonated well with many sneakerheads over the years, but just let me clarify myself. I think re-sell in the sense of standing in line on release date and flipping to the guy behind you that couldn’t secure a pair is bad. I term that “Bad-Karma Resell”. On the flip side, re-selling something you can’t easily find on the market even if you had money is good. Hence, I term it good “Good-Karma Resell”. I can go on literally for DAYYYYS about my opinion on this, but just to get the point across, i’m more of a “Good-Karma Resell”.
Anyways, to cut things short. I want to document my everyday life as a re-seller where many have elected to keep as a secret. Though I can’t give you all the tricks to the trade, but I feel many do want to understand what goes on behind the scene. Sure we always see the glamorous side of things when business is *BOOMIN** (aka sneakerDon), – a term i’m sure you all know by now. If you haven’t i’m sure you can google it yourself or peep the photo above. Life as a re-seller is a lot of fucking up and down. So hopefully you enjoy my blog and feel free to provide your comments and opinions!
