The resale market for sneakers is red hot
Chris Burns used to be a college English professor. Then, in 2011 he opened his Amazon store, Arch-USA, selling limited edition sneakers.
“From Black Friday in November to December 31, 2011, I made $65,000,” he said. In one month, Burns doubled his yearly salary as an English professor. “That was it,” he said. “I walked into the dean's office and I said, 'Hey man, I'm done.'”
