About US


We are the first sneaker & streetwear marketplace to open in Kansas City, Missouri. We are located in the Crown Center on the second floor. We carry many limited sneakers and streetwear brands, you will not find anywhere else.

With Initial, customers don’t need to travel outside of the city to find authentic streetwear brands or go through the hassle for a pair of sneakers. There are no pre-orders or reservations. As long as the item is in stock, all customers are empowered with the same opportunity to acquire anything they want.

Everything is guaranteed authentic. All our CDG Play, Human Made, AAPE and BAPE are shipped straight from a licensed dealer in Japan.  We do not sell, accept, or otherwise deal with fakes, “grey market” items, or factory variants. All sneakers we accept for sale are carefully and thoroughly inspected for condition and authenticity at multiple checkpoints before they’re offered to customers. We are trained to identify any and all inconsistencies.




All sales with Initial are final.  Initial is a consignment marketplace, meaning all items we carry and offer on this site are provided by independent owners. Once an item sells, either online or in one of our stores, the owner receives payment for their merchandise. Because of this, we are unable to process returns or exchanges.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.
