Sneaker Freaker Issue 49 Has Touched Down!
We know you’ve been waiting! Sneaker Freaker Issue 49 has finally arrived.
The latest issue is a 200-page trip through the past, present and future, with a focus on the early 2000s. Memories of the Y2K era are relived with features on Peter Yee, the former Oakley designer responsible for the Ellipse logo and many of the brand’s most iconic moments, as well as Linus Nutland from Nike Server. Racing to the present, the heat gets hotter with a world-exclusive reveal of Salehe Bembury’s latest New Balance colab starring on the cover, with closer looks at the ‘Magma’ and ‘Lava’ 1906Rs inside. Continuing the uber-colourful theme is an epic interview with dip-dye designer Lorenzo Federici, aka @lorenz.og.
Taking things into the future is Gabe Filippa’s inter-dimensional AI feature that showcases spookily translucent Air Force 1s, badass baroque detailing, and anatomically incoherent sneaker sculptures that are impossible to manufacture. It’s only a matter of time before the first Al-derived sneaker franchise arrives to capture the hearts of a new generation… read about it here first!
If you flick to the inside back cover, you’ll also get the scoop on the new Sneaker Freaker book. World’s Greatest Sneaker Collectors is a stonking journey into the priceless stockpiles and obsessive minds of footwear aficionados. At over 750 pages, this is our biggest and most insane publishing project yet!
