Josh Luber is the cofounder of the leading streetwear, sneaker, watches, handbags and collectibles marketplace, StockX. Before growing the business to a $1 billion evaluation, Luber’s background was laden with prerequisites. The former founder of Campless, affectionately known as the Kelley Blue Book for sneakers and senior management consultant at tech giant IBM, Luber is the perfect man to change the face of sneaker retail.
Incorporating the insights most important to their customers—like live market analytics, volatility for investments, a trading price range over the last 12 months and other helpful data for consumers and sellers—StockX has become the preeminent marketplace for buying and selling all things hype.
StockX describes its process as “a live ‘Bid/Ask’ marketplace, where buyers place Bids and sellers place Asks. When a Bid and Ask meet, the transaction happens automatically.” ONE37pm had the opportunity to ask this kingpin of sneakers to spill the stories behind his top five favorite sneakers at the moment. His answers are delightful. Take a look.
