When you think of luxury quality sneakers what comes to mind? I'm sure all of the high fashion designer brands are the first names that come to mind. The while stylish, super expensive brands. One brand that is looking to take a stand and lower the price of luxury quality sneakers is Greats. The brand based out of Brooklyn has quickly become one of my favorites. "Greats is the first mens sneaker brand to be Born In Brooklyn. Greats is passionate about building the best footwear in the game at the best price. As Charles Eames liked to say about his designs, "The best, for the most, for the least" and we think that's right. It's ok to buy status, just don't overpay". That last line straight from the companies website is pretty much the reason the my website even exists.
Greats does its best to create the best possible product while keeping in mind that not everyone has a whole bunch of money to blow on footwear. The brand was started in 2013 by two Long Island guys named Jon & Ryan. "In 2007 Ryan and Jon had discussed an early idea for GREATS but didn't do anything with it. Then, in late 2012 they got together and said, "What if?" What if we built a vertical men's footwear brand that made high quality product and sold it direct to the consumer at a value price. Ryan and Jon knew that the wholesale business of selling to 3rd party retailers was inefficient and that inefficiency was paid for by you, the customer, in the form of higher prices. And with the idea of building a better sneaker for less, GREATS was launched in August 2013 and quickly became an instant "Classic" selling out of most styles within 90 days and as GQ says "Shaking up the sneaker to store inventory flow" and as FORBES says "Greats is building the next Great footwear company".
Greats has plenty of different options for all of your footwear needs. Plenty of different styles and colors to go around for your liking. Its nice to see a company take a stand and offer affordable options to customers all the while giving them the same quality.
