Get To Know the Man Behind Heskicks
James Hesse or more popularly known as Heskicks is a content creator and Youtube personality who is based in Portland, Oregon. As of writing Hes Kicks is one of the biggest and OG Sneakerhead Youtubers in the world with 610k subscribers as Hesse drops new content daily. Heskicks on top of his success on Youtube and a variety of social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter also has his own website called Collective Kicks which features a variety of sneaker-related stories as well as weekly deals that range from Basketball cards to the most popular shoes and sneakers.
Heskicks started off his passion for sneakers as a kid due to his love for basketball. Growing up he would lay it out on the courts and in turn, his love for the game grew to a love for anything related to the sport such as basketball cards and sneakers specifically in the Jordan era. He eventually decided to turn his passion and love for sneakers from a simple hobby to an all-out passion project and eventually a career in itself through his social media platforms and the partnerships that he now has with big shoe brands.
Hesse is also a family man and a father of two kids. This aspect of his life plays a lot into his Youtube career as well as he is at times seen giving parenting advice which in turn adds on to his multi-faceted personality which many of his viewers can relate to as well. Hesse as a full-time content creator integrates and promotes a healthy balance in life as well especially in regards to his priorities with his family, specifically his kids. This is what makes Hesse all the more influential because of the values that he injects not just in his videos but more importantly, these values are clearly evident in his personal life.
Heskicks also has a wide range of sneakers for his collection which has continued to grow not just for his Youtube channel but primarily because of his love of collecting them. His collection ranges from AF1s, Ultraboosts, Yeezys, and a variety of collaboration sneakers and exclusives. Back in 2017 Heskicks decided to sell his entire sneaker collection in order to help pay for his house mortgage and better support his family — another testament to his values for family.
