His goal in life has been to design his own shoe with Nike SB.
Having open-mindedness and commitment in any work we take up is of utmost importance today, as only these things can help people taste their definition of success. There are a lot of things to be learned in life and also many guides, resources and books are available to teach us things, but nothing really beats the genuine advice from people who have already made it in their respective fields. At a very young age, Chris Robinson made it huge as a sneakerhead and entrepreneur in the US, owning his sneaker store in Long Branch, NJ. This is a feat only a few youngsters have been able to achieve. He believes that being loyal and honest to one?s work, along with being committed and having an open mindset, can help people earn long-term success.
Since the time he was a kid, he dreamt of becoming financially free and earn it from the career of his choice, the sneaker business. In 2007, he opened his first store named ?Addicted Sole?, which closed down in 2009. However, in 2011, he purchased his current sneaker store and since then has only been growing each day as a sneakerhead. Chris Robinson confesses that he absolutely loves collecting sample pairs, which is also an attribute that has made him unique in the industry. These sample pairs are more sought-after and valuable.
As an Irish African American guy from a small town on the Jersey Shore, Chris Robinson never thought that his passion for sneakers and collecting them would someday turn him into one of the top sneaker entrepreneurs in the US. His routine includes waking up every day and checking eBay, StockX and Nike for rarities and catching hold of the pairs that attract and excite him the most.
He considers Kanye West one of the greatest role models of his life who inspired him to focus mainly on fashion and sneakers. He learned from him how to remain focused on the goals without caring about anyone else. Chris Robinson also found passion in food, fitness, travel and, of course, sneaker hunting.
His happiest day of life was when he owned his sneaker store and became the man who gets to control the sneaker queues instead of being the man standing in the sneaker lines. That?s how he has achieved success and that?s how he has changed his life for the better.
