The popularity of sneakers has grown to epic heights. With that said, sometimes you just want to pass up the campouts and the random raffles in exchange for a quick no-hassle purchase with a trusted reseller. And while there may be a slight premium to pay, the price is worth your sanity and all that time you save.
In comes Kix Square. A South Florida based online sneaker boutique started by local sneaker enthusiasts CP and partner Nick. Kix Square not only has most of the latest limited releases, but they also have a good inventory of classics and older model releases. However, Kix Square makes sure to offer competitive pricing while trying to be as affordable as possible.
We caught up with CP, one half of the duo behind the store, and discussed a few things within a matter of five quick questions to give you a good grasp of what they do.
305: So how long have you guys been in the business?
CP: We have been closely associated in the sneaker game and selling shoes since 2008.
305: What is the “mission statement” behind what you do at Kix Square?
CP: Our “sole purpose” is to supply the demand in the sneaker community at the most competitive prices guaranteed. We are your everyday sneaker brokers that always push our standard and stay ahead of the trends. We also provide consignment services. We take full pride in offering the most variety of product selection from general sneakers to high-end designer product.
305: What would you say are some of your highlights since opening up shop?
CP: I would say the fact that we started off selling shoes to local clients to now being able to sell shoes to some of your favorite athletes and entertainers worldwide. We also had the opportunity to meet DJ Clark Kent who has had a tremendous influence on the growth of the sneaker community over the years.
305: What kind of trends and transitions have you seen in the sneaker game lately?
CP: The demand for sneakers reached new heights after Lebron James took his talents to South Beach and released the highly sought after Nike “Pre Heat” Lebron 8’s. Over the years it’s been amazing to see how “trends” and “styles” no longer hold value. And at this point it seems the new upcoming collectors purchase items in order to earn acceptance rather than individual preference.
305: What’s in store for the future of Kixsquare?
CP: To continue to build our brand and branch out into the clothing and accessory industry. We are also looking forward to bringing forth the South Florida sneaker community by hosting local sneaker events.
