Meet the Sneaker Don aka @BenjaminKickz. Those of us in the industry have been familiar with Benjamin Kapelushnik, for quite a while now. He’s done what most of us in the industry know as flipping kicks. Buying hard to get shoes and selling the for a huge mark up. It’s an actual strong business model. It reminds me of the stories I would hear from my uncles about buying old ford and chevy trucks, changing the oil on them and throwing a new coat of paint on the for $68 dollars and flipping them for $1000.
What’s impressive is that he started out small selling whatever he could like candy and gum to to get himself to the point of affording sneakers at retail. It has certainly earned him credibility here, not to mention he’s done nearly $1 million in sneaker sales and his clientele includes DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Ian Connor, Hassan Whiteside, DJ Carnage, G-Eazy, Little Yachty, Post Malone (shout) and more. Now he’s going to bring things to the another level and open stores in all the hot spots including Miami, Los Angeles and New York. We wish him luck because it’s the American Dream and Business is BOOMING!
