Sneaker & Streetwear LegalTM

The global sneaker and steetwear industries have come a long way. The days of waiting in line or going to your local mall to get a general release sneaker are over. A new era of limited sneakers and collaborations has emerged and has catapulted the sneaker industry financially. In 2018 Cowen Equity Research classified sneakers as an emerging alternative asset class. The sneaker industry has certainly emerged and is expected to reach $95.14 billion by 2025, almost double the $50 billion valuation from 2015 (according to Grand View Research Inc.). Business Insider even listed the valuation of the underground resale market over $1 billion.

The evolving sneaker industry is made up of many different groups. From sneaker resellers at local stores, larger online stores like StockX, GOAT and Stadium Goods, to Sneaker YouTubers, Instagram and Tik Tok Influencers, and bots that help you cop sneakers online for retail. The industry is thriving. Huge global brands, entrepreneurs and budding creatives are working together on collaborations, blending the traditional lines between high fashion and street culture. Brands now have the ability to be seen and recognized around the world in an instant. The tremendous growth and development in the sneaker industry have highlighted the need for legal assistance and legal education and that is where Sneaker Law Firm comes in.
