About US

Early on we recognized the benefits of bringing new technology to the sneaker resale market. We’ve drawn from our decades of experience in financial technology and the sneaker industry to create an electronic exchange where our users can safely and securely trade sneaker interests 100% electronically.

We built our exchange so anyone (anywhere) interested in trading sneakers can do so inexpensively, in a fair and transparent marketplace. The building blocks of our exchange are integrity, security and ease of use, ensuring a positive experience for all. Our patent-pending technology enables our users the potential to profit from their sneaker-related knowledge and experience.
