Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Brooks Crevoiserat for an interview. Brooks owns @crevkicks, where he sells shoes to celebrity rappers such as Gunna, Roddy rich, Sheck Wes and Don Toliver. I asked him about his success, hard work, how he got started, and for his best advice.
We are starting to see a lot more younger entrepreneurs pursuing their dreams and building businesses and Brooks Crevoiserat is one of them. As a kid Brooks always loved shoes, but after a while he wanted to be able to buy them without the help of his parents. In order to do that he had to go to shoe releases and buy multiple pairs. This allowed him to sell all the pairs, make money, and keep one for himself, and repeat this process. Being from Los Angeles, he played basketball at Sierra Canyon a top 10 basketball school in the nation, it helped Brooks make a lot of connections to athletes and rappers.
It Pays to Be Different
Brooks says that what’s impressive about his work is that he does all this sneaker stuff as an 18 year old kid who just graduated high school, and was also doing all this on top of being apart of one of the best high school basketball teams in the nation. This is what makes him different from others in this space.
Being Inspired In Business
When it came to pursuing this path Brooks says “My dad inspired me because I have seen him succeed throughout his life in business and whenever I ask him how he was able to turn something hopeless into something amazing he always tells me to work hard and I will get there one day.”
Finding Support In Business
According to Brooks his parents have helped him throughout his entire life, and despite creating Crev Kicks completely on his own as a 15 year old kid, his parents have always supported him no matter what the circumstances were. Brooks said “My dad will travel the country with me to sneaker conventions and help me run my booth while I go around and buy more shoes for the booth.”
