We had the good fortune of connecting with The Sole Proprietorz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi The, what makes you happy? Why?
Being us is what makes us happy. In whatever way others perceive us, as long as we stay true to ourselves it allows us to remain ourselves. We like to set goals and try to achieve those goals in whatever fashion that presents us. We love what we are currently doing because we are doing it. This venture that we are currently on is ours and it was our idea from the beginning. There are definitely more goals and achievements that we want to accomplish, and we will strive to reach those goals as long as they are within the confines of us.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Our purpose has been to share our interest in sneakers with others, and we have simply used social platforms to do so. We create YouTube content on sneakers and share our opinions of those sneakers with others. Honestly, we are still trying to find our place, but we do know that our opinions and our tastes in sneakers definitely separates us from the rest of the sneaker community. We also have other business ventures that we are definitely looking forward to in the future. Hard work, dedication, attention to detail, and staying true to ourselves have allowed us to be in the position that we are in today. Right now we are a brand, a brand that we are continuing to grow. Along with that will come our business, a business that we feel will flourish with the work ethic and desires that we have to create something special. We are still in our infancy but with all of the love and support that we’ve received so far there will definitely be more success for us in the future.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We absolutely love this city. It is a versatile city with much to do. We were born and raised here, and we still haven’t done a lot that the city has to offer. We would most definitely take our friend to some of the best “mom and pop” eating spots. There is a great restaurant called PT’s Fried Chicken and More that we will make sure to visit. Then there is the city attractions: Reunion Tower, plenty of murals in Downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, Farmer’s Market, etc. Then of course being that we are sneaker lovers, we would most definitely hit up all of the sneaker shops that the city has to offer.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Our recognition begins with those closest to us. That would be our parents and wife/sister-in-law. They are easily our biggest supporters and continue to push us to be better. Also we would like to recognize our family as well as those that fully support us. We thank everyone that has started this journey with us and we hope that you guys continue to rock with us moving forward.
