Jon Buscemi launched his first fashion line at just eight years old. He distributed the shirts and hats throughout his Long Island skate community. And even though he grew up to be a successful stockbroker, he never let go of the dream of having his own fashion brand.
In 2013, Buscemi distributed a limited edition of Italian-made leather sneakers with golden padlocks and miniature keys to select retailers including Barney’s and Neiman Marcus.
The extremely high-end sneakers might not appeal to a wide range of consumers.
