Slang is a sneaker-only marketplace primed for mobile devices and in-the-know buyers/sellers

Slang is an iOS app that brings appropriate swag to selling kicks with ease-of-use, security and social approval for sellers. Sneakerheads should rejoice that buying new or used shoes is now just a swipe away.

The app provides end-to-end service for a 12 percent cut on the sale price. This includes all card processing fees and shipping labels to sellers while offering escrow protection to buyers. It also banks on hip neon lime, black and white aesthetics to make the community a little bit more forward than, say, 20-year-old eBay.
