Chris Robinson is an Irish and African American sneaker collector born in a small town from Jersey Shore, who conquered the world of sneakers. Today, he is one of the most famous collectors, having over 3000 pairs of sneakers in his collection and a very successful entrepreneur. 

Money, Power, and Respect. These are the top three core values in life for Chris. He is the owner of a shop dedicated entirely to sneakers. He will soon celebrate the success of 10 amazing years of hard work and achievement. When we asked Chris where he sees himself in 10 years, his answer was very impressive.

In 10 years, I hopefully have done a couple collaborations with Nike, have worn my Paris Dunks in Paris, my London dunks in Tokyo, and my Tokyo dunks in Tokyo, as well as opened a few extra doors for my business.”

There are a few lessons learned on his way up to realization, one of the most important things would be to focus more on business, not on women. With hard work, dedication, and love for fashion eventually everything led up to success. Chris Robinson told us that the happiest day of his life was when he purchased his sneaker store. At that point, he finally became the guy who gets to control the sneaker lines instead of the guy standing in the sneaker lines. 

Chris Robinson is fortunate enough to share his success with those in need. He donates to multiple charities through sneakers. 

I have purchased 3 pairs of the Nike Air Mags and donated over $15,000 to Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s Foundation, as well as $11,000 to Doerbecher Childeren’s Hospital after purchasing one pair of the What the Doernbecher Nike Dunk in an eBay charity auction. We run numerous clothing/shoe drives throughout the year in-store to help out our local communities.”

Chris worked his way up because he believed in his dreams, in himself, and of course, in his passion. For him, sneakers are not just leather and glue. They are simply work of art and if you have an eye for it, you know that even the simplest pair has a story to tell. Chris and Teacup Yorkie Courtney are determined to influence the sneaker culture, the growth of the sneaker community, and growing respect for sneakers as a whole. 

With a clear vision in mind and a well-structured perspective, Chris Robinson will change the world of sneakers, and one day, he will be able to design his own shoe with Nike SB because he always relies on himself to get the job done. 

While it’s nice to have support from my friends and family I have come to realize that it is up to me to be the leader in my own success.”

Feel free to check Chris on Instagram @sbcollector. I am sure that you will be amazed by his collection and his passion for fashion. You will find some sample pairs there and a whole new world that you cannot even imagine, from simple pairs to the most extravagant ones, his collection will fascinate you.
