We Believe That Premium Sneakers Shouldn’t Be Reserved for the Privileged Few
To: All Sneaker Lovers Around the World
From: Allen, the founder of Artemisselect.cn
Are you sick and tired of watching other people wearing excessively expensive (but super cool) sneakers while you have to settle for more affordable and available models?
I know I was…
My income wasn’t allowing me to come anywhere near buying my dream kicks, but that didn’t stop me from watching and reading everything that has to do with them.
(Yes, I am one of those fanatics who know your own shoes better than you do)
That said, nobody was surprised when I decided to get into fashion design school and take internships at Nike and Adidas factories.
And that’s how it all started…
Shocking Truth: ‘Limited Collections’ Aren’t That Limited at All
While working in these factories, I noticed that THOUSANDS of pairs of the most popular exclusive sneakers get left behind.
Just like that.
I did my research and, as it turned out, these factories (hired by big brands like Nike and Adidas) produce 2-5 times the amount of shoes they had been hired for in the first place.
The reason being is that they need these extra pairs ‘just in case’ – to replace the rejected pairs after they fail to pass quality inspection.
Well, guess what happens once enough pairs pass the control and the company reaches its quota?
Hundreds (if not thousands) of extra pairs get left behind.
Can you believe that?
As crazy as it might sound, big brands release very limited stocks into the market to create the scarcity and hype up prices, and order the rest to be thrown away.
That’s when I came up with this idea…
Factories Don’t Know What to Do With All These Extra Sneakers. Do You?
As a sneaker lover, I couldn’t watch all those amazing kicks get left in the dust.
So I went straight to these manufacturers and asked them to sell me these leftovers… And they accepted.
(What would they do with them anyway?)
That’s how this website was born.
Fast forward today, we collaborate hand-in-hand with the manufacturers that produce sneakers for all major brands, such as Adidas, Nike, Supreme etc. and sell exclusive models like Yeezy Boost Collection, Jordans, Off-Whites, Human Races etc. at more than reasonable prices.
