Sneakers have come a long way since its origin story hundreds of years ago. Its history is fast-paced and is marked with hurdles and rough patches. But today, sneakers are a fashion staple and a continuing stalwart in people’s everyday lives.
And just like the sneakers he loves so much, Michael has also come a long way from his humble beginnings. He had to slay a couple of dragons in his journey, but with his strength and resilience, he came through.
Hailing from Denver in the green and the majestic state of Colorado, Michael Mitchell brought his bright ideas to life through his YouTube channel – A Sneaker Life. Also known as “MikeTheCompass” on YouTube, this content creator is known for his sneaker reviews, lifestyle vlogs, and practical tips in purchasing pieces of merchandise such as clothes and sportswear.
Michael’s channel is aimed to help his audience score great deals by allowing them to snag products at a lower cost. But aside from his highly upbeat platform on YouTube, this rising entrepreneur also manages two affiliate marketing pages on Twitter and Instagram – Deals Under Cost and A Sneaker Life, respectively.
The YouTuber’s love for sneakers is something that he wears on his sleeve. Ever since he was a toddler, he already had all of the retros, and his mother would even keep him a clean pair of sneakers at the ready. But although he was already known for being fond of shoes, it was not until sophomore year in high school that he really started to pick up on the different models and started his collection. Growing up, Michael had to face a lot of uncertainties. However, his passion for sneakers helped him stay grounded since it was that one thing he could always be sure of.
A Sneaker Life was initially just an avenue for Michael to unleash the passion building and churning inside him. It was also something that he thought could propel him closer to his dream of making it in the entertainment industry, specifically YouTube. And although it was a daring move hinged on calculated risks, Michael had faith that his passion would catapult him in the right direction. After years of commitment and hard work, his channel is now one of the most sought-after programs for deal junkies and sneaker enthusiasts alike.
But according to Michael, getting the recognition for his channel was far from being a walk in the park. The world of YouTube was a tremendously competitive one, and to stand out among millions of content creators would be a long row to hoe. However, the success-driven entrepreneur went in with full force and proved that he has what it takes.
It did not take long for subscribers to fall in love with Michael’s charming and authentic personality. And that being said, authenticity played a vital role in his climb to the top. He explains that the entertainment industry is losing more and more genuineness and that it would be refreshing to see someone who is real. So with his relatable content about the latest trends and random life updates, Michael’s channel has quickly become a staple for sneaker enthusiasts and deal junkies across the globe.
Popularity and fame never got the best of Michael. Instead, he uses his influence to create a movement where people can be free to do whatever it is that they love and to nurture their crafts with utmost confidence.
