Three things to keep in mind as you ponder potential sneaker careers:

  1. There is no one correct path into the sneaker industry. Many of our Sneaker School collaborators describe very different journeys, but they all share a passion for sneakers, footwear, and the culture that surrounds it all.
  2. While the paths vary, most sneaker industry pros have held a series of jobs in, or related to, the sneaker industry. You’ll need to understand what sneaker jobs are available and stay updated on changes to the sneaker job market.
  3. Building experiences in the sneaker business is how you level up. Think of it like a video game – your collection of accomplishments will unlock more opportunity. Want to become a sneaker designer? You’ll have to pass a few levels to get there.

As with any great journey, it all starts with the first step.
