DIY: 12 Pieces of Valuable Advice From Sneaker Shop Owners

Understand The Logistics

Jeff says: "Shoes require you to carry a ton of inventory. Take for example one shoe. It comes in size 7-12 with half sizes. Two colors. That is 22 SKUs even if you order only one piece per size! You order two pairs of each size and you're already looking at 44 boxes. That's just ONE SHOE. You can see how this can quickly become a money pit unless you're somehow able to turn around and sell product at an extremely quick rate. My advice: Stay away! But if you still wanna do it...good luck!"
