Sean Conway teamed up with Grailed on the site’s first-ever influencer sale.
Sean Conway is a stylish NYC-based sneakerhead and the owner of more than 500 pairs of kicks. (Also: He’s an employee of the city’s coolest avant-garde fashion shop, Dover Street Market.) On his Instagram or at DSM, you can regularly see Conway sporting the latest sneaker releases with his own mix of baggy jeans, workwear, and Supreme. But while he’s spent years collecting new sneakers, it’s his skills at getting rare wares into the hands of customers that’s now come in handy. Now Conway has teamed up with Grailed as part of the site’s first-ever “Influencer Sale,” launching today. It sees the Maryland native unloading some of his best gear on the reseller-friendly site. In short, that means a sick collection of Jordans, Yeezys, and Supreme is up for grabs on the low right now over on grailed.com.
For the more hype-driven crowd, there’s some Doernbecher Jordan 9s being offloaded for $650, a Supreme x North Face fleece, and some Nike Air Yeezy 2s, in addition to tons of cool Supreme tees. On the more tame side, there’s a Supreme M-65 jacket that keeps the logos to a minimum while evoking some seriously classic vibes.
Why sell these grails? Well, Conway has recently turned introspective about his obsessions. Speaking on sneaker culture at large, he told Grailed, “On the one hand, there are still the OGs, the guys that have been doing this for decades, still out here waiting in lines, but then it’s hard because this new generation seems to be way more aggressive, almost greedy in a way, you could say.” And at the end of the day, this kind of sale is what Grailed is all about: picking up some highly coveted pieces from a trusted source without necessarily breaking the bank to do so. Sure, Conway’s Jordan 9s certainly don’t come cheap by non-fashion standards, but things like the M-65 can easily be grabbed for just $275. And just know if Conway doesn’t possess any of your personal grails, Grailed will be teaming up with more stylish guys on similar sales very soon.
