The sneaker industry is a HUGE community with a deep-rooted culture and long history behind it. Also, the sneaker industry is EVERYWHERE. In what way, you ask? Well, you can find sneakerheads everywhere you go, wherever you are and on any platform. We’ve got sneaker TikTok, in the Metaverse with digital sneakers, on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook Marketplace, and more! And so, naturally, we’ve got sneaker YouTubers!
There are a lot of reasons why people have started YouTube channels dedicated to shoes and the love of footwear. We sneakerheads love everything related to sneakers: talking about them, wearing them, flexing them, and making money off them! Therefore, the channels they create on YT usually do exactly that. The purpose of a shoe-related YT channel could be:
- Teach sneakerheads how to buy sneakers online
- Sneaker botting guides:
- Channels for reselling sneakers online and making money
- Hyped sneaker reviews and ratings
- Channels for flexing sneaker collections
- Sneaker YouTubers who create guides for:
Basically, sneaker YouTubers provide everything you can find in a sneaker blog but in a more visual way. So, if you’re a person who learns more through visuals, this is for you!
