A New Performance Footwear Company, Q4 Sports, Arrives on the Scene Just When It Matters Most

LA-based footwear company to serve athletes who are as obsessed with their performance as the brand they wear

CULVER CITY, Calif.--()--While the mega footwear brands are spending millions marketing their exorbitantly expensive and inaccessible signature shoes during the NBA playoffs, Q4 Sports, a fresh force in the global athletic footwear industry, has been quietly developing a new line of basketball shoes that is the ultimate blend of technology, style and performance.

The new, privately held company’s DNA is built around the four principal elements of any game – Team, Passion, Commitment and Focus. “Without them there is no game and without them there is no Q4 Sports,” Sokol added. “We saw a need in the marketplace that was going unfulfilled by the big, highly impersonal, detached, monolith companies as well as the niche Chinese footwear brands. Our goal is to design and produce premium performance footwear for the athlete who takes sport as seriously as we do.”
