Pony 40 Year Retrospective Book by Sneaker Freaker

pony 40 year retrospective book by sneaker freaker Pony 40 Year Retrospective Book by Sneaker Freaker

Few in our niche can rival the journalistic reputation owned by Australian periodical Sneaker Freaker.  During their ten years of service to the sneakerhead set, SF has leveraged that credibility for a number of superlative collaborative projects (most recently, the ‘Bushwhacker’ Saucony Grid 9000).  In this case, it would seem that the brand being celebrated has even more to gain from the exposure, as recent collabo releases indicate that Pony is making a serious effort to recapture its former glory in the brand’s 40th anniversary year.  The SNKRFRKR-published Pony 40 Year Retrospective reminds us that this brand supported athletes ranging from Bob McAdoo to Reggie Jackson and Spud Webb, but you’ll probably never see one on Amazon (or eBay for that matter, given the tight F&F distribution on this run).  Click through for a glimpse into the latest SF-authored banger and stick with Sneaker News for updates on Pony’s 40th birthday.  via FNG

Sneaker Freaker x Supra Skytop III “Goldenballs”

July 5th, 2012 by | 7 comments

supra goldenballs Sneaker Freaker x Supra Skytop III Goldenballs

Fresh off the heels of the release of ‘Bushwackers’, Sneaker Freaker continues its 10th Anniversary celebration with yet another sneaker collaboration, although these might not be the worldwide pleaser as the Grid 9000s were. Why is that, must you ask? This Supra Skytop III dubbed the (‘Goldenballs) falls into the dreaded ‘Friends & Family’ category as just twenty-four pairs will be handed out during the Sneaker Freaker party in Berlin, although Sneaker Freaker will give away one pair to a lucky a fellow Freaker later on. Speaking on the composition of the Sneaker Freaker x Skytop III: it’s a soft yellow suede upper matched with a black heel with a speckled grey/black midsole and white outsole, while the sole pink eyelet provides enough contrast to compel a double-take. It’s no mystery that the folks at Sneaker Freaker are gods when it comes to color-blocking, but it’s sad that these may never end up in your hands! A detailed gallery awaits you below so check ‘em out and let us know what you think.

Sneaker Freaker x Saucony Grid 9000 “Bushwhacker” – Release Date

Saucony’s Elite collection with Bodega and the recent 2×2 pack with Packer Shoes has given a bunch of attention to its once nearly forgotten golden age cushioning breakthrough.  And while the Saucony Grid 9000 can’t stand toe-to-toe with a model like the Air Max 1 when it comes to pure historical significance, a smartly chosen collaboration can indeed show us how this design offered every bit the era-defining aesthetic as some of the more household names.  So if you’re looking for a breath of fresh air in your classic running rotation, you can’t do much better than Sneaker Freaker’s  Grid 9000 ‘Bushwhacker’, a ‘Tiffany’-plus-tan design whose speckled sole nicely integrates a colorway the likes of which we haven’t quite seen before.  SNKRFRKR manages once again to subtly make its mark on a just-off-the-mainstream model, and just in case you forgot, there’s an ‘F’ stitched into the left-medial ‘S’ in addition to the SF 10th Anniversary footbeds that you’ll see in greater detail after the jump below.  Sneaker Freaker’s Grid 9000s will be available starting Friday, June 29th at retailers like End, so click through to view more photos and stick with Sneaker News for word on a possible US release.

Sneaker Freaker 10th Anniversary x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Bushwhacker’

Sneaker magazine and industry principal Sneaker Freaker has displayed their level of knowledge quite well through their sneaker collaborations in the past. Asics Gels, New Balances, and Sauconys alike – whenever these Aussies get their hands on a pair of shoes, it’s time to pay attention. Sneaker Freaker recently teased their upcoming Saucony collaboration in their German Sneaker Freaker Issue 24 (which, overall, has revealed itself to be the ‘September Vogue’ because it’s filled front-to-back with gold), but here we have a first look at their 10th Anniversary celebration dubbed the ‘Bushwacker’; it features a mix of Black, Mint Green, and Beige, with diamond-mesh toes and ankles and roped laces held together by lace-locks. On the Saucony logo, you’ll notice the customary ‘S’ stitched between the three dots, but peep the medial side and you’ll see ‘F’ – a nice little easter egg to make these that much more special. The Sneaker Freaker 10th Anniversary x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Bushwacker’ is expected to release in July at select Saucony retailers like End, so check out the detailed images below and stay tuned for more updates on the Grid 9000 and other Saucony partnerships.
