NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Created by a young, entrepreneurial sneakerhead for the sneakerhead community, SNEAKMART today launched its online and mobile sneaker marketplace. The brainchild of a 17-year-old sneaker enthusiast, SNEAKMART is a fusion between an e-commence platform and a social network, bringing innovation with a unique app. SNEAKMART is catered specifically to the growing sneaker community, so the online website and mobile app will house thousands of products that range from highly sought-after new releases to limited edition and classic retro brands from the 1990s and early 2000s. Users will find brands like Jordan, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Asics, Converse and more.
"Since my 12th birthday when I started my sneaker collection, sneakers have always played an important role in my life and are what fueled my passion for wanting to create a simplified buying and selling method for sneakerheads. With SNEAKMART, my vision was to create an online experience and mobile app that felt uniquely suited to the sneakerhead community," said Anthony Debrant, CEO and founder of SNEAKMART. "While the platform functions as a marketplace, our long-term vision is to create a social experience that encourages sneaker lovers to interact with one another and contribute content, stories and more."
Currently, the secondary sneaker market is a $1 billion industry, and SNEAKMART's mobile app will allow users to easily navigate the platform with simple steps for buying and selling product. Each user is able to create a personalized page (both on the mobile app and website) that is reflective of his/her own sneaker preferences. Items can be easily uploaded to the app through a user's camera phone, and there is no restriction on pricing. Similar to the innovative app, the multifaceted website allows users to buy, sell and trade sneakers while also staying up to date on the latest news and information related to the sneaker culture, including trends, new releases and more. To help guarantee the highest quality of sellers, the platform features a rating system for consumers to rank their buying experiences.
"In creating the site's interface and mobile app, our goal was to make something that was less sterile and more interactive, as mobile is the go-to search tool for sneakerheads," Debrant added. "In doing so, we believe that we deliver what consumers want – a trusted, reliable and easy-to-use resource that is far different and better than other sites that currently exist."
Membership to the site and the downloading of the app are all free of charge to consumers. SNEAKMART charges the cheapest transaction fee of 5% and is offering a discounted fee of 2.5% for the first three months of use (April – July).
