This week was great! Guys from Footshop came to our office in Chernivtsi. Such trips boost work efficiency significantly. We discussed a lot of technical issues, had presentations, went for city walks and had fun in the evenings.
We had a lovely conversation with Tomáš Mitana, the product owner, and he shared his working experience at Footshop with us.
The history behind Footshop started when student Peter was working on his school project. At the same time he had a job in the digital agency that cooperated with online marketing. He bought about 20 pairs of skateboard shoes and sold them successfully. Then he realized he could go further and make something more than just a school project. Tomáš shares: I suppose Peter didn’t expect such a success then”.
Now Peter Hajduček is the founder of Footshop – one of the biggest online shops that sells sneakers and apparel. They cooperate with famous brands such as Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Y3, Vans, Converse and Fila. He combined what he could do (skills in the digital marketing) with what he liked (skateboarding and skateboard shoes).
