Colin Stangel born and brought up in Chicago is the founder of Sneakerbratz. When Colin moved to Florida at the age of 12, he fell in love with sneakers and the culture behind them. He soon went to his first sneaker convention where he met someone who introduced him to Benjamin Kickz. Benjamin became a close friend who then helped Colin to market his sneaker selling brand. As Benjamin helped Colin grow his brand he sold it to his old clients such as Smokepurpp and Lil Pump. Due to such connections, Colin was able to obtain Lil Baby, DaBaby, Gunna, Trippie Redd, and many more influencers, artists, and athletes under the clientele list.

Colin’s profession

Sneakerbratz which is founded by Colin is a sneaker company that sells the latest and most limited, hard to get sneakers in the world. When Colin was not able to purchase the Yeezy beluga boost 350s on release day because they were not on his list, he realized that more people like him who wanted to get their hands on these limited sneakers are willing to pay top dollar for them. This made him start his own company.

Plans for Sneakerbratz

Colin has decided to broaden his reselling through social media platforms like Instagram and start a website that sells sneakers and explains his journey.

A few life-changing moments for Colin

Moving to Florida was life-changing because it exposed me to a whole new industry, to new people, and experiences. Meeting Benjamin Kickz kicked off my career because he was the largest sneaker resell distributor in the business which was career-changing.
