Sole Seeker is a community based web application designed for users who are interested in the sneaker industry. This web application encompasses a wide range of services that would attract sneaker enthusiasts. Our three main functionalities include a REST API sneaker search function to help usersfind their perfect pair, a Scavenger Hunt Giveaway Competition utilising a Maps API and a forum page that allows users to express their opinions and listen to others. The application also includes a secure Login and Registration system developed with Mongo DB, accompanied with encryption of personal information. My application also explores the possible revenue streams that could be facilitated with my website. As a Business Information Systems student, I wanted to focus on this area in depth. Areas such as PayPal Integration, Google AdSense and sponsorships were the focus point of this aspect. The Sole Seeker application was made using a wide range of technologies. One most prominent is Flask, a micro framework that utilises the backend language Python. This partnership of framework and language has grown immensely in the area of web development over the last few years.
