I usually update you on new music, or the hottest sneakers but today it’s something different. Have you ever seen these earbuds like this before? This is something nobody would ever come across to think about sneakers on earbuds? It’s unique, & honestly it amazed me so much. Some earbuds usually don’t have good sound quality but this was a whole different vibe. Giving me good sound quality and dope style. I got the opportunity to talk & interview Sneakergodz who is based out of Las Vegas & Chicago and is the CEO/Founder of the Retroplugs. Also the Chi-Town native Prophet Amen Ra who handles the Strategic Partnerships & Celebrity Talent Relations. 

What are Retroplugs? 

Sneakergodz told me that they are “a stylish fashion accessory that pays homage to poignant (significant) areas in everyday culture.”

How did the idea of these Retroplugs come about? 

“The plugs were created to provoke dialogue. Almost like brining a gap between new generation with past generation.” said the Las Vegas & Chicago Native, Sneakergodz

What were the influences that made this happen?

Prophet Amen Ra told me that “now in terms of influencers on the roll out side of things in regards to the Retroplugs campaign, & how over 60+ taste makers/celebrities have gravitated towards the brand in a 9 month time span. That happens, & occurs through a lot of premeditated decision making, & strategic planning between Sneakergodz & I.

All the celebrities you see attached to the brand have been solely off personal relationships from the both of us, & organically building networking-business relationships in the industry from our internal contact log over the years of us being in our perspective fields before coming together, and creating the Retroplugs brand. Sneakergodz, & I planned this roll out, & campaign a year prior to releasing the product online to the public. We sincerely appreciate, & are grateful to all the celebrities & taste-makers that have supported the Retroplugs brand. So through studying the culture, passion, hard work, & consistency in your business affairs overall, I feel like this is how a campaign of this prestige happens, & is achieved on this level & magnitude.

I asked Sneakergodz, the same question and he stated “I don’t know of you can pin point any true influences for Retroplugs because it was created so organically. During a photoshoot for SneakerGODZ we used a sneaker like a phone, like the old school show Get Smart. Thats when my daughter mentioned how cool it would be if music came out of the sneaker. From there the idea Retroplugs was born. Like giving homage to a throwback like Get Smart and pairing it with something relevant today such as earbuds.”

Where can anyone find this product if they are interested to try them out? 

Currently we are working to build on what we created and not selling the plugs. But that will be changing in the near future. We have built an organic community of taste-makers, celebrities, & influencers all with Retroplugs in industries such as Music (Artists & Producers), Radio/Broadcast (DJ’s/Hosts/Producers), Comedy, Reality Television, & Online Media (Editors / Bloggers/ Contributors) . This community prides itself off the exclusivity factor of having the Retroplugs first before they are available in mass quantities to the public. You can hashtag Retroplugs on your favorite social media site, & check out the celebrities that have attached themselves to the brand. Than you can also go to influencers like, MTV Ridiclousness star, Chanel West Coast social media  pages,& check out her exclusive drop with the Karl Lagerfeld edition Retroplugs which garnered over 40,000+ likes on all of her social media platforms. Otherwise we hope for the Retroplugs to be available when we feel it is appropriate for the brand. said Sneakergodz
