Today it’s so easy to get ripped off buying shoes online. Research show that fake shoes are the most counterfeited product entering the United States. It sucks to order shoes and then find out they’re knockoffs–believe us, we’ve been there before. It’s hard to have faith in any shoe website after buying knockoffs. You don’t know who you can trust, and you don’t want to get scammed again. This led us to think that there must be a better way to buy and sell shoes online, which is how we came up with the idea for our website.
Founded in November 2018 by Lance Troh, Ownkicks is unique because we guarantee that all major sneakers or shoe brands on our site are authentic, 100% knockoff free. Buyers want to make sure that their money is going to a safe, legitimate site and sellers want to make sure they get paid. Unlike our competitors, we don’t have subscription fees for sellers.
You can trust that any purchase you make is an authentic merchandise (major shoe brands) and that you’re paying on a secure site. We’re proud to be a black-owned business changing up the online shoe retail market.
We aim to become your ideal online marketplace for authenticated used and new sneakers.
Unlike similar companies, we verify each new listing for originality before publishing. This reduces your chance of buying essentially worthless fake footwear and sneakers. In addition, Ownkicks uses PayPal and Stripe as secure payment systems that both buyers and sellers can trust.
