About SportClothes …
Born and raised in Lithuania, Andrius Kolesnikas has always been passionate about the game of basketball. While playing recreationally he noticed that he could not always readily find the kinds of shoes he wanted to wear. That’s what promoted him to search for unique and hard to find shoes online. He turned to eBay to help him find the right sneakers and was soon also helping friends and teammates procure shoes. Andrius quickly realized that he could turn his hobby and passion for sneakers into a profitable venture. In 2008, at the young age of 21 and with only $1000, he started SportClothes, a small business selling sneakers and other sports apparel online. Many were skeptical that anyone would want to buy sneakers from a business in Lithuania, but Andrius finds that by providing excellent photos, descriptions, videos and outstanding customer service, most people have had no issues shopping with SportClothes.
Owning my own business provides me the freedom and flexibility that I desire and it has allowed me to take control of his own destiny and create opportunities for myself and others. I’m really looking forward to what the future holds for my business. In fact I’m currently planning to soon develop an App for the business.
