The endless quest for a “Holy Grail” is both blessing and curse as sneaker collectorsfiend, scheme, and dream of “the one” shoe they don’t yet own! From vintage classics to game-worn Jordans, Sneaker Freaker’s new anthology dives into the stock of prominent devotees and is augmented with pro tips on photography, storage, and avoiding counterfeits.

 

The Art of Sneaker Collecting

 

 

Sneaker Freaker’s epic guide to the ultimate sneaker collectors

 

Simon “Woody” Wood, founder and editor-in-chief of Sneaker Freaker magazine, has spent the last two decades analyzing the global cult of footwear fanatics. That experience directly inspired World’s Greatest Sneaker Collectors, a stonking 752-page journey into the priceless stockpiles and obsessive minds of prominent aficionados.

From Tokyo to New York, via London, Philadelphia, Melbourne, and Stjørdal, no crumbled midsole is left unturned as over 2,500 vintage classics, unique athlete SMUs, unobtainable samples, handmade 1-of-1 prototypes, stratospherically priced colabs, and Player Exclusives and game-worn Jordans with multi-million-dollar price tags are lauded with gusto. The endless quest for “Holy Grails” is both blessing and curse as our collectors fiend, scheme, and dream of “the one” shoe they don’t yet own!

Glossy portraits are augmented with a series of informative “How-to” guides stuffed with pro tips on sneaker photography, storage, insurance, cleaning, and avoiding the counterfeit curse. The expertise is priceless. The stories will entertain for days as we seek out the fundamentals of what it means, and takes, to define yourself as a “true collector.”
