Romy Samuel Entrepreneur and Sneaker Queen
“Get clear on Your North star. And whatever it is, do something every single day of your life that leads towards it – whatever it is that you want to do.”
Though born and raised in Australia, Romy Samuel left after University to see the world.
She’s lived in London, Israel, Europe, Melbourne, New York and Sydney. Back in the early 2000’s, she was working in the very male-dominated world of IT. Yet after a few relocations, she found her calling. An avid sneaker collector, Romy put her energy and tech know-how into her passion and recently co-founded Common Ace, a one-stop shot marketplace for women’s sneakers.
She has strong ties to the streetwear community globally and currently works for Kith, one of the world’s leading brands in streetwear fashion. She even has a weekly recap show on all things Streetwear, culture and sneakers, which she hosts with a few other women, called “the Loop”.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her American husband and two children.
