    Sometimes Not Being A Sneakerhead Gives You An Advantage In The Footwear Industry – Shoshy Ciment Interview

    Sometimes Not Being A Sneakerhead Gives You An Advantage In The Footwear Industry – Shoshy Ciment Interview

    Sneakerheads tend to view the footwear industry through rose-colored glasses and underestimate the number of non-sneakerheads that are regularly spending big bucks on sneakers. In today's episode, Nick Engvall talks with Shoshy Ciment, who reports on the footwear industry for Footwear News and is "not a sneakerhead." Shoshy talks about how she came to be reporting on the industry, some of her favorite stories, and how she keeps from getting sucked into becoming a sneakerhead despite covering the news day in and day out.

A favorite podcast

I enjoy this podcast a great deal. It is the perfect opportunity to nerd out about my favorite hobby. I’m always pumped when the new episode posts. It lightens the drudgery of work, at least for an hour or so. The hosts are all knowledgeable, likable dudes. A couple of them are fellow Portlanders which I appreciate. The community that has formed out of this podcast is excellent. A unique and special show for dorks like me that obsess about sneakers.

Great podcast

I love this podcast. As someone who started really getting into sneakers fairly recently, these guys are extremely knowledgeable and have friendly auras. I feel like I could grab a beer or lunch with these guys and just hang out.

As someone who does my own semi-successful podcast, I feel inclined to look at the pod from that standpoint too. These guys seem like very genuine friends so it makes the conversations run naturally. Comparing their first few episodes to what it is now is fun because you can tell they’ve gotten so much better with conversation flow.

The content is great. From in-depth interviews with people from the sneaker community, to snake draft style shoe drafts, to just general sneaker news talk. This pod has a variety of bits, and there’s something for everyone.

The discord rules too. I’m fairly new there but everyone is just so dang nice. I hope to jump in on a zoom call soon.

Love this POD

Should have done this a while ago, but I truly love this POD. You all have great chemistry and your approach to discussing sneakers is truly refreshing compared to a lot of what is out there these days.

Your last few interviews have been REALLY good as you talk about where we are, where we came from, and where we are going in this space.

Keep up the amazing work, you all have a listener for life.
