A solid listen every time

Glad I came across this podcast recently. Love the perspective Nick offers and the variety of conversations and guests that come. Keep it up!

Informational and Inspirational

Nick uses his years of experience in the sneaker industry to provide insight for sneaker enthusiasts. Whether you’re someone already on the inside or someone trying to break into the industry there is a lot to learn.

He has a breadth of knowledge to fall back on but instead uses that knowledge to provide fresh takes. It is inspiring to listen to when he presents all the different routes someone can make it in the sneaker world. Nick also brings in interesting guests that mesh well with his thinking and creativity.

You will learn something new in every episode and wanting to explore ways you yourself can impact sneakers.
