Presenter: Ian Williams

Ian Williams is a size 12.5-wearing sneaker fool who love cookies (soft ones), and if he was a little bit taller he'd be in a league somewhere. Ian spent about a decade at Nike prior to now. He started there as a Janitor and stutter-stepped his way through the corporate traffic to land a position as Footwear Developer. In 2014, Ian left the corporate world to start Deadstock Coffee a sneaker-themed coffee shop in Old Town, PDX.
