Shoe-In, the footwear industry's podcast

The footwear industry is in an age of constant change from how we design and produce footwear to how we market and sell shoes to consumers around the world. Old business models are being shattered and remade in ways that cannot be explained in 140 characters. That’s why we started this show – to have in-depth conversations about the business of footwear with the people actually designing, making, marketing and selling shoes.

Our goal is to pull back the curtain and get industry leaders to open up and give an insider look at the industry and their businesses. Listeners will hear amazing personal stories, unique approaches to current challenges facing the industry, as well as best practices, trends and tips from experts and executives. Join your hosts Matt Priest and Andy Polk each week as we have in-depth and dynamic conversations about the business of footwear, and probably have a laugh while you’re at it.
