On January 26, 2020, a helicopter carrying Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others crashed in heavy fog in Calabasas, killing all nine people aboard. Kobe Bryant, a 20-season Laker veteran, punctuated a legendary NBA career. It's almost impossible to put into words what Kobe Bryant meant to me and countless other lifelong basketball fans.
Our previous generation witnessed his royal airness: Michael Jordan. My generation had Kobe Bean Bryant, the closet thing to Michael we've seen. Kobe Bryant was my favorite player growing up. When I was a child, he inspired me in many ways. From Asia to the States, his "Never Quit" attitude keeps guiding me through darkness. He also inspired many underprivileged youth in many communities in LA.
On January 25, 2022, it is two years anniversary of Kobe's helicopter crash. My Kobe fans friends and I started our brand "SneakerUnited", to memorize and honor the "Black Mamba". We want to pass along this Mamba attitude to those sneaker lovers.
As sneaker lovers, we hope that our shoes will get the best care and protection, rather than being oxidized outdoors. We hope that our love shoes can be displayed in front of everyone, rather than simply piled up in the shoe cabinet.
Sneaker United was born for this. We are committed to solving their sneaker storage and sneaker display problems for every sneaker enthusiast. In addition, we are also committed to providing every sneaker enthusiast with the best sneaker maintenance method, so that every pair of sneakers can be as good as new no matter how long they are worn. We hope that with a new sneaker storage method, every pair of shoes can be protected and displayed just like the exhibits in the exhibition hall.
Sneaker United's mission is to hear the voice of every sneaker enthusiast, meet the needs of every sneaker enthusiast, and protect every pair of shoes. For this reason, we will break the routine and strive to find different ways to store sneakers. Let’s get rid of the traditional sneaker storage method, so that our sneakers can be protected and respected like a collection.
