Founder, Classic Soccer Cleats

Patrick Burd ’18Patrick Burd '18 graduated Seton Hall with a marketing degree and was a member of the Men's soccer team. While playing soccer at Seton Hall, he turned a hobby of selling soccer footwear into a business, forming Classic Soccer Cleats, www.classicsoccercleats.com.

Classic Soccer Cleats is influential in helping a tight knit community of soccer footwear collectors grow each year. His love of soccer footwear has allowed him to follow his passions and focus on what he values most. By embracing the idea of working smarter, not longer, Patrick believes in living a well-balanced life that isn’t consumed by work.
