Jacques Slade turned a passion for snkrs into a career
JACQUES SLADE looks to connect with each and every diverse member of that community with a variety of digital content, from his YouTube channel that averages 3 million views per month to his articles for cultural cornerstones like Complex Magazine, Sole Collector, Nice Kicks and more. Every sensory detail that comes with the moment of unboxing a fresh pair of shoes, from the smell of new leather to the feel of the stitching, is expertly captured through his videos which he creates completely on his own.
In a community where the newest drops sell out instantly and the most elite products aren’t available to the majority, SLADE is looking to bring all those exciting experiences to every corner of the culture.We chatted with him about his favorite sneaker stories, his most meaningful street culture memories, and the impact he’s persisting to make.
