dose | Sneaker Pawn Shop

08 August 2014, 16.55 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »


From a brownstone at the corner of 120th and Lenox in Harlem, NY, 16 year old Chase Reed is changing the sneaker game with his brand new store, Sneaker Pawn. Taking the pawn shop concept and applying it to in-demand sneakers, Sneaker Pawn gives small loans in exchange for sneakers and returns the kicks when the loan is repaid less a small storage fee. Or they sell sneakers on consignment with an 80/20 split in favor of the shoe’s owners. Combine those terms with a collection of the best Jordans and Nike’s in the world and you have a business built to succeed. See the kicks and listen as Chase explains to Timbo how he did it on dose.

Of all the board series’ we saw at Agenda this week, 5boro’s VHS series easily wins the prize for most dope.
