Nowadays we also need to approach the so-called “sneaker heads”. In China, the young consumers pay close attention to sneaker and street culture.  Sneakers have become a very important element of the daily fashion mix & match. Lots young people even pick the sneakers before pick the rest of the outfit. As for Levi’s, we should to teach young consumers that choosing the right pair of jeans is just as important as choosing the right pair of shoes.
