Two of the top destinations for buying and selling sneakers are about to join forces to change the mobile sneaker marketplace as we know it.
NYC's Stadium Goods global marketplace has announced a new partnership with GOAT, the smartphone app that makes buying and selling safer thanks to its thorough authentication process. This collaboration puts an emphasis on mobile transactions, which make up an ever-increasing part of the $1 billion secondary sneaker market.
"Through this exceptional alliance, we look forward to bringing Stadium Goods' collection of thousands of authentic sneakers to our mobile community," Eddy Lu, GOAT co-founder and CEO, said.
By combining Stadium Goods' unparalleled inventory of rare sneakers with GOAT's intuitive platform, sneakerheads will be able to purchase product that they might not otherwise have access to. This is huge news for re-sellers, too, as it will allow them to eliminate potential scammers and have their sneakers sold by Stadium Goods — all through the use of a mobile phone.
"We believe together, GOAT and Stadium Goods will offer sneaker enthusiasts the most premium and user-friendly mobile shopping experience," Stadium Goods co-founder and CEO John McPheters said.
