Bannedla was created for people who simply love sneakers. We are a private community that lives on Facebook, created to buy, sell and trade sneakers in a trusted environment.
In 2014 we created a buy/sell/trade platform on Facebook that started a community based around sneakers. Our name was inspired from two things, the Jordan 1 “banned” from 2011 and the name being rebellious and somewhat dangerous.
Our brand started from what was a “just for fun” thing where we flipped the supreme box logo and made our own box logo. We intended it to be for the admins of our page and not to sell. The community ended up seeing it online through social media and we got a good amount of people that wanted to buy so we did a pre-order. We ended up selling 100 tees and hoodies which was a lot for us. We used the money we made from that to start going to conventions like sneakercon and dunkexchange where we intended to expose our brand through hype sneakers.
