Any Sneakerheads in here? Try my app

I've been working on a small little side project and would like some feedback on what I've built so far.

Basically, a good way to quickly check prices and availability across multiple marketplaces/consignment stores in real-time.

Me I buy about one pair of sneakers a year and I get New Balance so Iím not your target clientele but it looks like a great idea and Iíd be surprised if someone didnít think of it before now but maybe youíre the one. Still canít believe some pay that kind of prices for sneakers, to each their own.

You'd be surprised to see how cheap normal shoes can be obtained for. A lot can of new balances and general Nikes / Adidas can be bought for significantly under retail.

Very cool. One thing i'd think about is targeting powersellers on eBay directly, as most of these sites are marketplaces that just simply re-list the inventory of a lot of eBay merchants and have biz dev teams reach out to make them a middle man.

Try building out a push notifications stream to get people coming back and seeing the price they want, so you'll retain a lot more people for the long run. Give people options to "like" or "subscribe" to products so you can always build out ways to get people to keep checking for things they might like, on a property you own.

If you get these right, you'll have levers to pull in case you want to make money. Cool stuff!
