When self-acclaimed Sneakerhead Simon “Woody” Wood decided to pursue his love of sneakers and freebie footwear with a publication, the mighty Sneaker Freaker was born. From its punk fanzine-style first edition in 2002 to today’s slick print + online operation, the indie magazine has remained at the fore of the global sneaker scene, documenting every collab, limited edition, retro reissue, Quickstrike, custom shoe & more, with raw passion. As “funny & serious, meaningful & pointless” as the magazine’s own ethos, the book packs in more than 650 pages of dense insider knowledge, hundreds of beautiful photos & Woody’s own obsessional observations. The book rollicks through some 100 years of sneaker history, documenting Air Max, Air Force, All Stars, Dapper Dan, Michael Jordan, Reebok Pump & Nike Skateboarding, alongside more obscure treasures like Troop, SPX & Vision Street Wear. All the major sneaker moments are all there, from Kanye to adidas Futurecraft, Nike Air Force 1 to New Balance as well as landmark collabs & prominent ad campaigns.
