Tempe Toes owner Cristian Zendejas still remembers the rush he felt when reselling a shimmering pair of red and black Jordan 1 “Bred” sneakers in 2012.

Although he was only 13 and netted less than $40, he became hooked on the thrill of churning a profit.

This excitement followed him through high school and college, where he traded his sneakers for a pair of cleats.

Zendejas served as the kicker for Arizona State University’s men’s football team from 2019 to 2021. His biggest career highlight was sailing 23 kicks through the uprights his sophomore year, becoming the fifth kicker in school history to successfully kick more than 20 field goals in a season.

After studying criminal justice while playing competitive football, the Perry High School alum couldn’t shed the sensation of selling sneakers for a high profit.

Zendejas began selling sneakers via his Instagram account in 2019, as well as out of the Midtown Phoenix sneaker store Phoenix Soles. But he still had a dream of owning a store of his own.

Around July 2022, he returned to the basics of selling sneakers via his Instagram account and stashed his inventory in a storage locker. After a few months of locker sales and meetups, Zendejas was rewarded with an offer to open a store.

More than a decade after selling the red and black Jordan 1 “Bred” sneakers, Zendejas turned his childhood hustle into a business — his store, Tempe Toes or “Tempetoesss,” officially opened in October 2022 on the first floor of Nowadays Creative Lab on Mill Avenue.

“I live down the street — I can honestly walk to work,” Zendejas says with a laugh. “The location for me was just perfect, and it gave me an opportunity to properly use the name Tempe Toes, since I’ve been living in Tempe for the last six years but I sold

in Phoenix for a while.”

He opened at a fortuitous time, as the sneaker market has grown in popularity despite the trend of resale sneakers dropping in price.

“The market is at one of its lighter points right now,” Zendejas says. “But for a new sneaker business owner, it’s perfect because prices on stuff are pretty cheap — whereas during COVID-19, prices were outrageous.”

Offering a variety of sneakers from brands like Nike, Air Jordan and Yeezy to high-end names like Gucci and Balenciaga, Zendejas has noticed new trends among his customers due to the renewed popularity surrounding

a long time without even knowing it,” Zendejas says. “I would just go shopping at Goodwill and find cool stuff.”

As a result, he also proudly sells vintage sports clothing, NASCAR tees, baseball caps and band tees.

“We started carrying vintage clothes the second we opened because it was cheaper for us to get a lot of inventory,” Zendejas says.

Although stocked with a surplus of affordable vintage wear, Zendejas has prioritized higher-end streetwear.

“We still have over 100 Harley Davidson tees and a bunch of random vintage tees, but now we’re segueing into like higher-end streetwear,” he says.

With a crowd of young, fashionforward students returning to his neighboring alma mater this month, Zendejas is excited about the prospect of meeting new customers and possibly selling them their first sneakers.

“The whole shop is loaded with stuff, so I really can’t put anything new in there anymore,” he says with a laugh. “So I’m just excited to see everyone come back, and we have a lot of recurring customers. So I’m excited to see how their summer has gone.” CT


“A lot of people are wearing all black for the most part,” he says. “I’ve seen more people going for the ‘Black Cat’ Air Jordan 4’s — a shoe that used to go for almost nothing that is now selling for thousands — and the Travis Scott Air Jordan Low ‘Phantoms’ — which are all-black shoes.”

Tempe Toes

Another trend has been the rise of incorporating “vintage” T-shirts into modern fashion.

Every incoming college freshman asks themselves, “What do I want to do for the rest of my life?”

The good thing about college, however, is that it allows students to figure out the answer at their own pace.

Every student will have to take the same general education courses to help round out their education, but when it comes to picking a major, this can feel like the most daunting decision during an undergraduate program.

Though there are hundreds of programs to choose from, here are some that have high employment rates and can earn sizable salaries after graduation, according to a report from


Every company needs someone with the aptitude to balance the books of their business, and individuals who understand tax laws are rare to find.

Although accounting graduates could be in debt by a median of $17,750, they can expect to graduate into an industry with a 95% employment rate and a median salary of $53,930.


Engineering is one of the top majors among STEM students and most enter the field dreaming of working on machinery that can explore extraterrestrial terrain.

Although this is a competitive field, the major of aerospace, aeronautical and astronautical engineering has a median salary of $64,490 and boasts a 99% employment rate.

However, this is a hefty investment, as it carries a median debt of $22,490.


For students who would prefer to focus their efforts on the problems plaguing this planet, civil engineering just might be their path.

Civil engineers are frequently sought out to design and complete major transportation projects and devise plan infrastructure that can help improve society.

This career has a median salary of $62,880 and an employment rate of 98%. One caveat to this major is its median debt of $24,590.


The demand for computer engineers continues to grow each year as

more and more companies become dependent on fast-running computers.

Computer engineers design, build and maintain hardware in modern computers, have a median salary of $74,090 and an employment rate of 96%. Students can expect a median debt of $23,610 by choosing this major.


With computer information systems becoming a part of almost every business and organization, this major offers an abundance of opportunities for students.

Because of this, students can expect to graduate in a field with a 96% employment rate and a median annual income of $66,360. This major also boasts a lower median debt compared to other majors at $18,810.


Construction management professionals learn how to mix their knowledge of innovative technologies, construction principles and business management to pave the way for a wide variety of construction projects — from residential and commercial buildings to infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges and large facilities.

These professionals are currently being sought after heavily due to construction worker shortages and project delays.

Upon the completion of their degree, construction management graduates can expect to step into an industry with a rare 100% employment rate and

expect to earn around $75,200.


Electricians are becoming increasingly harder to find, so electrical engineering graduates can expect their education to pay off almost immediately.

The field has a median salary of $70,680 along with an employment rate of 97%.

However, this does come at the cost of a median debt of $22,170.


It is always wise to store a portion of each paycheck with the help of someone who has expertise on how to invest money wisely and plan for the future.

After earning a degree in financial planning, financial planners can look forward to a 96% employment rate and a median salary of $56,840. But, there is also the hurdle of a median debt of $20,450.


Industrial engineering students will learn everything about the design, improvement, installation and operation of integrated systems of people, materials, information, equipment and energy. These studies aim to determine efficient ways to make a product or provide a service. During these studies, students could rack up a median debt bill of $24,250. Once they graduate, though, they will enter an industry with a 97% employment rate and a median salary of $70,180. CT
