Life as a sneakerhead isn’t easy—especially for those who live outside of major cities. There’s a lack of mystique and influence in smaller towns that can hinder a sneaker advocate’s ability to grow and hone his or her collection. How exactly does one go about representing the culture outside of a market like New York City or Los Angeles? How do you cop exclusive releases when you don't even live near a sneaker boutique, let alone a shopping mall with stores like Finish Line and Foot Locker? Hopefully these tips will help you figure out how to satiate that appetite for dope kicks when you live in a small town.
