Remember a month back when Complex compiled what they labeled as the 50 most influential people in sneaker history? As is usually the case with their frequent lists there was much debate once the post went live, with folks from every corner of the internet depositing their two cents into the discussion. Up next they’ve approached more or less the same topic but with a contemporary lean, focusing on the right now of the sneaker world rather than the more historical figures. Check out to see some selections from the list of the 50 most influential people in sneakers right now, compiled by Matt Halfhill, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
D'Wayne Edwards should be near the top of the list. He's educating the next generation of footwear designers. He is literally changing the game, 49th on the list does not do him and his school justice.
