Zaid Osman's Sneaker Exchange

The Sneaker Exchange, was created by Zaid Osman and is where people buy and sell their own footwear. The young entrepreneur's business idea came about after living abroad while growing up. Born in South Africa, he moved to Richmond, Virginia, at four, before moving back to South Africa at 15. Once back in South Africa he was aware the kicks left on the shelves were the very ones which would sell well back in the US. He started buying them and selling them back to the US sneaker freakers. Sneaker Exchange events, also feature live music and the next event is on October 29 in Cape Town, South Africa.. Osman tries to support South African sneaker culture through his store Lost Property. Started in his parent's house in 2010, before Sneaker Exchange, it started as the hub for sourcing limited edition products for customers in South Africa.
