Should I start a sneaker website?

Dec 29, 2007 @ 02:06
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.

You mean kind of like this one?

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
