Tayib has been working on the idea for a series of interviews about the sneaker industry. I helped Tayib develop his website: http://www.housakicks.com after he had paid several developers and gotten no where. He knew I had been involved in sneakers for a long time and thought who better to ask these questions. In this video we hit on whether today’s market is good for reselling shoes and we talk about how Nike has changed the game and it now benefits those who love sneakers.
