Get ready for Issue 42 of Sneaker Freaker. With over 200 pages of white-hot heat, this monster edition should keep you busy for days!
The adidas Ozweego and New Balance 850 are both graduates of the school of 1996. Meanwhile, Christian Tresser – la don of Dons! – reviews the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon he designed in 1997. The Nite Jogger retrospective also shines a light on one of adi's OG legends!
We also take a trip to toytown for back-to-back features. In Perth, Josh De Vaney’s insane $100k collection of Jordan memorabilia inspired a true life detective story that saw him travel tens of thousands of miles to Ohio to prove his point. On the flipside is Duane Perera. A native of Toronto, his ingenious IG project known as Duane Shoots Toys is a kooky carnivale that stars Obama, MJ (both of them), Super Mario, Buzz Lightyear and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. We also catch up with Rustyler, whose IG feed looks more like a cookbook than a sneaker store, and Richie Culver, who coats counterfeit sneaks in concrete, all in the name of art.
Chi Modu also talks us through his favourite photos of rap’s golden years. From Snoop to Tupac, he shot ‘em all. Check our limited edition cover with Eazy-E rocking Gazelles!
