I know that there's already plenty, but I want to make one that actually involves its members, as opposed to most that purely give the news. I dunno I'm just brainstorming at this point, but what type of stuff would you guys like to see in a sneaker website that isn't already out there, if anything?

place to buy/trade? giveaways/contests? should i just leave it alone?

I'm open to all suggestions, I just want to know what you guys think is missing from the community.

Just leave it alone, I say.

You'd really have to fill a void in the community I feel in order for it to be really successful.

I say Give it a try, you never know the result unless you try it. Once you did it whether it is going to be successful or not, you won't regret it later in life.

Yeah I would never start one if i didn't see a void, but i think there is something that we need that no one's really thought of yet, the subculture is still very young.

I know for a fact that we need a sneaker auction website that WORKS (unlike bluesole), but I've already considered that and i don't want that to be the sole purpose of the website if I make it one at all. But I do have a couple ideas up my sleeve.......

And while yes i would like to achieve the acclaim that hypebeast has, I don't want to make another hypebeast, its unoriginal, unprofitable, and a bitch-move in general.

However I did think about it, and since i really have nothing to lose i setup a website: www.sneakerheds.com

It only has a "coming soon" page, but I'm really gonna get to work on this. So please give me any constructive suggestions you may have. Remember, I'm making this website FOR US, I want it to be of service/entertainment to you all. Also if there's any freelance html/xhtml writers/programmers that want to build their resume, feel free to get at me.

I also think that you shouldn't.
The hypebeast thing is kinda already at its edge, you should think about something else more "cool" / useful
