The company provides pin to pin information about the shoes which includes; the sale price over the last 12 months, a ticker, price volatility, and material used.

The site which started off in footwear in the year 2016 has now resonated with Canvas and sneaker fans. This platform has expanded enormously over a period of time and has reshaped into various categories.
