The simple answer is no. Sneakerhead is not a true life story. However, the creator of the TV show has given shape to the Sneakerheads according to his own experiences. For example, Jay Longino once went to Hong Kong and saw an entire street called ‘Sneakers Street’ full of different types of sneakers. So the theme, and to some extent, the story of Sneakerheads, is inspired by his real-life experience.
