Sneaker Freaker #36 is the biggest issue we've ever made! To celebrate the occasion, we produced this killer promo mixtape with Craig Leckie, who also wrote the definitive guide to sneakers in hip hop lyrics featured in the mag.
Issue 36 also features the first comprehensive NMD retrospective. The fact that we are publishing it less than a year since NMD launched indicates the power of this hype-munching monster. Check our interview with adidas’ VP of global design, Nic Galway, for more insight into this intriguing and influential franchise.
This issue’s long-form feature – and at 38 pages, we really mean long – examines the history of Supreme x Nike colabs. We also delve into the supermodel roots of the adidas Gazelle and detail the incredible history of the Converse All Star. Thanks to all the folks at Converse for handing us the keys to their archive, this exhaustive feature was one helluva undertaking.
We also introduce Rolo, a dedicated fan of OG Jordans only. His cracked and rotten collection of vintage Jays is truly bananas!
And if that’s not enough, we also reveal the long-anticipated Sneaker Freaker 'Tassie Tiger' colab in our very special sealed section.
