Introducing COLLECT by SoleSavy, a New Kind of Sneaker Marketplace

author

The secondary market for sneakers has never been more volatile. There’s a lack of trust, connection, and transparency involved that has caused buying, selling, and trading sneakers to be a nuisance and a risk. As people who love sneakers, we’re looking to improve that process and level the playing field. That’s why we’re proud to introduce COLLECT by SoleSavy, our marketplace app where you can fairly buy, sell, trade, and (most importantly) connect with other real sneakerheads.

Built by sneakerheads, for sneakerheads, COLLECT was designed to put the fun back into buying, selling, and trading sneakers and put the consumer first. Let’s bring back the days when we didn’t flex about profit, or try to exploit people that missed out on a release. 

  • COLLECT was built for buyers and sneakerheads
  • Every user will have their identity verified with KYC technology
  • Buy, sell, and trade all within the app
  • No extra fees paid to SoleSavy

As important as connection is, we think it’s equally important to know who you’re transacting with. This is why COLLECT is only available to SoleSavy premium members. We take careful consideration into whom we allow to become a SoleSavy member and we’ve set up Know Your Customer (KYC) identity verification within the app, ensuring you’ll know exactly who you’re transacting with. You’ll no longer be dealing with faceless names on a screen, you’ll be dealing with a fellow member of your online community. Note that the data collected with KYC will not be shared with any other company and will be used strictly to verify member identity. The data lives with our verification partner and never even hits our servers. 

COLLECT will be unlike any marketplace out today because of who we built it for. In a world where marketplaces are catering to sellers, we’re putting the consumer and sneakerhead first. You’ll start by creating your profile, you’ll then be prompted to verify your identity, and to set up your payment info. Once you’ve been verified you’ll be able to:

  • Upload your sneaker collection
  • Explore the collections of other members
  • Make offers for sneakers
  • Buy/sell/trade sneakers

*Helping members get new sneakers for retail remains one of our top priorities but we understand that buying, selling and trading has always been an important part of sneaker culture and want to provide members with a safe and fair place to get past releases.

We believe a marketplace built for the sneaker community instead of those trying to profit from it is long overdue. SoleSavy will in no way profit off any transaction in COLLECT, allowing our members to maximize value and avoid paying superfluous fees. That’s right, unlike many of the platforms you’re accustomed to, you won’t have to pay a fee to a middle man per transaction for buying, selling, and trading on COLLECT. All experiences on COLLECT come included in your SoleSavy premium membership. The only fee you’ll pay is the standard credit card processing fee, which is an unavoidable expense.

Be on the lookout for more COLLECT news and updates. We’re currently in private beta for select members. During this time we’re fielding feedback (tell us what you want) and working with our members to build the app of their dreams. If you want to be the first to know when beta is opening to additional members, sign up here.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
