Evan Goodman has been in the shoe business for 35 years. on a visit home from Los angeles to see his family in boston, he was searching for a fun activity. he attended music festivals and discovered he enjoyed electronic music, The culture of spreading love, Peace and unity appealed to him greatly and he immediately fell in love. He decided that this focus of love would be perfect to apply to his love of shoes. He believes that you should do something you are passionate about, and then success will follow. the ability to blend his two passions seamlessly and successfully has resulted in the genesis of flashgear footwear.
now that he has a substantial following, he believes in the value of personally interacting with his followers as opposed to the popular option of allowing a company to run their social media accounts for them. he firmly believes personal interactions build unique relationships. This is actually how we met! I had commented on an instagram post and he reached out. isn't that awesome?! I mean, it's not like I know a bunch of CEO's but man this guy is cool. It's refreshing to encounter a CEO who has a hands on philosophy regarding the social media aspect of his marketing in an era when its easy to feel disconnected and ignored by so many companies you patronize.
he sent me some game changer high tops and i was super stoked because I share the same passion for EDM culture and style. i was definitely looking forward to shooting for flashgear. Take a look and you can see why!
