SoleSavy's mission is to disrupt the $80 Billion universe of sneakers by providing sneaker enthusiasts and collectors the tools and resources they need to acquire limited-edition sneakers directly from the source without paying premium resale prices.


The most sought after sneakers and streetwear on the market sell out in a matter of seconds. We make it possible for our customers to successfully acquire limited-edition product in seconds using our proprietary tech. The saving of time and money is a  key factor in our success and has helped us grow to over 1,900+ customers in North America and continue to grow 10% MoM. We're on target to cross $1m ARR by the end of 2020 (Please see Data Room for additional detail regarding the assumptions underlying these projections).

SoleSavy is a differentiated premium sneaker community, which allows us to form close relationships with our subscribers and create partnerships with major retailers across North America. SoleSavy members have purchased over $1.2 Million worth of tracked sneaker purchases in 6 months through affiliate partners and boutiques.  We are building brand loyalty through a customer-first approach that sets us apart from the rest of the industry. 

Our business model is simple - we charge $30/mo to join the community and gain access to our platform of tools, content, and product. We also earn 5-10% in affiliate fees from our customers when they purchase sneakers via our partners. We plan on introducing additional pricing options ($7, $15, $100) to help us capture a wider audience from the casual sneaker enthusiast to advanced users and collectors. 

We have a lean, metrics-driven team with over a decade of experience in the sneaker industry. Dejan (CEO) co-founded Kickdeals.com - a sneaker affiliate business generating $1MM in annual revenue and Justin (COO) managed five Nike retail stores owned by New Age Sports. Both have deep industry networks and connections that they leverage regularly.

We're raising our first seed round to scale the business, expand our technology offerings and continue to monetize all aspects of the industry.

Prior to SoleSavy, Dejan co-founded Kicks Deals, a prominent website in the industry providing customers curated content to purchase sneakers through affiliate transactions. That business has grown to 1MM in annual revenue from affiliate only. Over the years he saw a decline in community and focus on the consumer experience which sparked the idea to monetize the industry through connection, content and community to help lead and grow transactional growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making an Investment in SoleSavy
How does investing work?

When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by SoleSavy. Once SoleSavy accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to SoleSavy in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in SoleSavy.


What is the difference between preferred equity and a convertible note?

Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.

A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.

To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.


What will I need to complete my investment?

To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:

  1. Personal information such as your current address and phone number
  2. Employment and employer information
  3. Net worth and income information
  4. Social Security Number or passport
  5. ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)

Because SoleSavy is offering its securities under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, your status as an Accredited Investor will also need to be verified and you will be asked to provide documentation supporting your income, net worth, revenue, or net assets or a letter from a qualified advisor such as a Registered Investment Advisor, Registered Broker Dealer, Lawyer, or CPA.


What if I change my mind about investing?

Until a closing occurs, you may cancel your investment at any time, for any reason. You will receive an email when the closing occurs and your securities have been issued. If you have already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To cancel your investment, please go to your portfolio page by clicking your profile icon in the top right corner.


After My Investment
How can I sell my securities in the future?

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now SoleSavy does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point SoleSavy may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when SoleSavy either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.


How do I keep track of this investment?

You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement.
