Jordana Schrager

Stamps junior Jordana Schrager’s company, Sideline Sneakers LLC, has sold more than 10,000 pairs of Skicks — canvas sneakers in college logos and colors.

University of Michigan junior Jordana Schrager is an arts major with a business minor on pace to graduate next year — but she’s already putting both disciplines to work.

Schrager, 21, took her hobby of making custom artwork shoes for her friends and classmates and made it into a business that has sold more than 10,000 pairs of licensed footwear in dozens of college logos and colors. 

She is co-owner of Boca Raton, Fla.-based LLC, which markets the high- and low-top canvas sneakers under the brand name Skicks.
