Clicks for Kicks: How Technology Changed Sneaker Collecting

Did technology kill the thrill of the hunt for sneakers? How are "hack-the-system" bots shaping the future of the resale market? Have collaborations with artists, musicians, and fashion designers hit oversaturation to the point of demeaning their value, both economically and sentimentally? We invited Jersey City’s biggest and most influential sneakerheads to talk about how the internet has altered the sneaker culture. Featuring Tony Chen from Soled Out and Jen Twice from Snkrroom, join our guest hosts Eric Cano and Brian Scully as they step into the mainstream lifestyle of the sneakerhead.

As per usual, complimentary wine will be provided, thanks to Mana Wine.
