The Sneaker Don

Benjamin Kicks

Young Sneaker Enterpreneur Makes his Mark

What were you doing at 19? Partying it up in freshman year? Hitting the books?

For Benjamin Kickz (real name Benjamin Kapelushnik), life as a teenager has been very different. Known as the “Sneaker Don,” he has gained large amounts of money and notoriety by selling rare sneakers to athletes and celebrities.

“I got into sneakers at 13, so like, 5 years ago, but I really started selling them heavy at 15,” says the young mogul. “Basically what made me get into buying and selling shoes was because my mom bought me this one shoe, the LeBron 9 Galaxys, and everyone was like “oh this is the wave.” I just felt like I had the sauce, so I just started buying shoes.

“Basically, I started off with DJ Khaled cause he was the first celebrity that I sold sneakers to. Then he introduced me to a bunch of other people like P. Diddy and French Montana and all of them.”

Here’s a look at some of the kicks that the Sneaker Don is offering:
