Letter: Sneaker business sign of entrepreneurial spirit

Amid a year that’s been anything but easy for local business, I’m thrilled to see it has not deterred the entrepreneurial spirit of one Fishers resident, Daniel Lamers.

Daniel has expanded his online sneaker business, “Naptown Kicks,” into a physical storefront in Carmel. He has conducted his due diligence on the market, created an impactful brand and continues to manage a successful business that has resold thousands of pairs of high-end sneakers. I’m excited for his business to take the next step with an investment into our community.

Naptown Kicks, located at 7 E. 126th St., will feature consigned merchandise, coveted brands, and otherwise hard-to-find products to support the efforts of area sneaker enthusiasts.

As Hamilton County commissioner, I want Hamilton County to continue being a haven for young entrepreneurs like Daniel.
