Sampler: Crepe City
At first glance, the phenomenon of ‘sneakerheads’ can seem a little perplexing. But niche culture groups exist because they have something to say, and the degree of obsessiveness that can be felt in these individuals is definitely cause for pause.
Crepe City is a beautifully-crafted sneaker magazine we’re offering this week. Though the content might be a little removed from our regular offering, it’s totally refreshing to be plunged into a thriving, unfamiliar world. Scroll down to get an idea of the content in this issue, and if you think it might be something you’d like, head over to Sampler to order a copy before it sells out.
In this issue:
— Dave White is known amongst sneaker fans as the guy who made oil paintings of Nikes in the late ’90s
— A photo editorial looks at the past, present and future of the Adidas Originals NMD footwear line
— Ronnie Fieg of KITH has a sought-after collection, but he’s still waiting for the “iPhone of footwear”
— Lalla Boudmagh aka Superllalla’s personal sneaker collection is clinically documented
— Exploring Nike’s most innovative Air Max shoe, the Air VaporMax, with Nike Running Vice President Brett Holts
— And new sole technology BOOST™ (UltraBOOST and YEEZY BOOST 350) is dissected by Adidas designers
