I love your response. My nephew is a huge sneakerhead in the bay area. Its very impressive because he is so young and doing very well. People really have no idea what value of shoes are these days. I had no idea what a huge market it is and all of the work that is involved. In my day we had 2 brands Adidas and Nike. Lol
