However, Sean Wotherspoon’s interest in sneakers started way before 2018. In fact, his career in the sneaker industry can be traced as far back as 2013, when he co-founded the vintage Virginia-based sneaker store, Round Two, which pays for sneakers in cash as opposed to consignment.

Some may think that most sneaker enthusiasts are males. However, Jess shows us that females can have the same interest in sneakers.

In fact, Jess’ rise to internet stardom can be traced to her passion for creating stylish sneakers. Jess was the founder of the first-ever ladies-only online sneaker store Small Feet Big Kicks. The store has made its waves in several continents around the world – from Australia to Europe.

As the owner of a sneaker store, you can expect Jess to own many pairs of sneakers. Indeed, in a 2019 interview, she indicated that she owns more than 300 pairs of sneakers. From limited-edition collaborations to Classic sneakers, her shoe cabinet is probably the dream of many.
