About Campless

THE COMPANY

Campless is a sneakerhead data company.

We collect data about the resale marketplace, analyze it, and report back to you.  Our primary data source is eBay.  We analyze almost 11 million eBay auctions to provide many statistics about sneakers.  The Campless Sneaker Price Guide is our seminal work, but there’s a lot more to sneakerhead data than price.  Yes, average price is an important data point, but we also report on everything related to that price – how many pairs are on the market, is the price increasing or decreasing, has it been consistent, etc.

In some cases, we dig deeper and extract insights about the sneakerhead market, such as “Do sneaker prices vary by size?“, who are the most and least expensive eBay sellers, and more esoteric questions like “Are sneakers more like stocks or drugs?“.  This blog is a collection of those insights.

Because the more information you have, the better decisions you can make.

Whether you collect sneakers for love or for profit, the goal of Campless is the same:  to provide you with sneaker information not available elsewhere, for you to browse at your leisure, or use to buy more kicks.

So feel free to keep camping because you love it, not because you have to.  Know more, camp less.

THE GUY BEHIND THE DATA:  Campless is run by Josh Luber with the help of several friends.  Josh has founded and run three start-ups prior to Campless.  He is currently a complete sell-out, being compensated with tradeable U.S. currency and extravagant benefits like health insurance by one of the largest companies in the world.  In return, he learns complicated data analysis skills while leading analytic projects for IBM’s internal strategy consulting group.  When not working with IBM’s data, Josh switches to a spreadsheet with less zeros but more swoosh.

JOIN THE TEAM:  If you love sneakers and can code, or love programming and wear sneakers, or wear data and can sneaker….er, you get the point.  We’re looking for four types of people:

  • Mobile developers (iOS and or Android) who have been waiting for the chance to code the future of mobile sneakerhead engagement and never imagined it would come in the form of turning our data and blog into a mobile app
  • Mobile Web developers (iOS and or Android) who have been waiting for the chance to code the future of mobile online sneakerhead engagement and never imagined it would come in the form of turning our data and blog into a mobile app website
  • Self-professed data nerds who would give their right vlookup for an hour of playing with sneaker data
  • Infographic experts who are experts at making infographics . . . while wearing sneakers

If that’s you, get in touch:  data@campless.com or use the form.
