Staten Island, New York


The Solepack journey began in the Staten Island-NYC area in the late 90s. The cultural hotbed of NYC around those times played a heavy influence on the movement. As a student, commuter, b-baller and sneaker enthusiast Solepack’s founder, Michael Sala, needed a way to store his shoes on the go. He looked for a product that let him store his shoes on his backpack, but there were none… so Mike invented one himself! His signature product the SP-1 featured a patented design that stores your kicks on the sides of your backpack, providing the most ergonomic means of storage during travel. No more dangling kicks from your pack and no more need to carry that extra bag for your shoes.
