The Sole Wash was cultivated under Footage Society, a premier sneaker boutique in Laurel, MD founded by David, Nichole, and Tyler. Since 2015, Nichole, with the support of her Footage Society co-owners, has grown the Sole Wash into a leading service provider, specializing in sneaker cleaning and restoration. She has also established an academy to offer specialized training programs and classes. In 2019, the Sole Wash was officially established as a sister company to Footage Society which expanded to Washington, D.C. in the Spring 2021.
As a Afro-Latina female in a historically male dominated industry, Nichole (IG @ricanpowergirl) is excited to be the first female to own a sneaker laundry. She hopes to continue to pave the way for other minorities in the sneaker industry.
