The 50 Most Influential People In Sneaker History

7. Eddie Cruz and James Bond

Who And Why: UNDFTD, Union, L.A. style pushers 
Years Of Influence: 2002-present

While other people were opening up single boutiques, the UNDFTD Crew was opening multiple stores and really killin' it. That’s why they're so high up on this list. To me, Eddie is a little guppy in an ocean of conglomerates that shoe brands can’t neglect or stomp all over. I love that David and Goliath mentality and look forward to the day when there will be 100 Undefeated stores. Remember the days when Athlete’s Foot, Foot Locker and Champs were the only stores you could go to physically get kicks? No longer.
