The Ultimate Sneaker Enthusiast Community
Enthusiasm is intense enjoyment, interest, or approval. The word was originally used to refer to a person possessed by a god, or someone who exhibited intense piety.
Sneakers (also called trainers, athletic shoes, tennis shoes, gym shoes, sport shoes or runners) are shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise, but which are now also widely used for everyday wear. The term generally describes a type of footwear with a flexible sole made of rubber or synthetic material and an upper part made of leather, synthetic substitutes or cloth.
NikeTalk is an Internet forum for the discussion of sneakers and sneaker collecting. This website was started by Nelson Cabral, from Montreal in Canada on December 10, 1999. Since then Niketalk has evolved past just talking about shoes, and now is a place for discussion about sports, the media, music, video games, and the news. On July 18, 2012 NikeTalk moved from the Yuku platform to Huddler; users can find Niketalk through Niketalk.com. On May 22, 2014 NikeTalk's operator Huddler, Inc was acquired by Wikia, which led to NikeTalk partnering with Wikia. In February 2016, NikeTalk, in collaboration with Wikia, created a series of confessional videos containing interviews from NikeTalk community members at the Wikia headquarters. In July 2017, NikeTalk enlisted the services of Communityhired.com who oversaw Niketalk's migration to a new platform, independent hosting, and the development of their new and improved website.
