18. Damany Weir
Who And Why: Entrepreneur, Flight Club founder
Years Of Influence: 1998-present
Damany was one of the top eBay resellers, putting a stranglehold on the entire global market of sneaker releases and making a ton of money from it. He eventually turned that into a business called Flight Club and sneaker companies really had no idea what to do about it. His store is an anomaly, carrying kicks that not even Nike Town had, but he didn’t even have accounts with sneaker companies. Damany definitely flipped the market upside-down.
