“I’d never seen 3M before. I saw these shoes and this kind of Jumpman glow . . . “

That’s how the esteemed contemporary British artist Dave White described his first encounter with the Air Jordan V, the sneaker that originally hooked him in. It’s the Air Jordan 1 that DW himself has collaborated on, and in the video interview with Sneakerpedia you’ll see after the jump, White shows off a sample version that had a crazy velcro Swoosh setup intended to accommodate Elephant, speckle, 3M reflective and another choice. Let us know if any of Dave’s personal favorites match up with your own and stick with Sneaker News to see if his Melo M9 or any other future Jordan Brand collabs will release.

Sneakerpedia x Sneaker News Editors’ “Grails”

sneakerpedia x sneakernews editor grails Sneakerpedia x Sneaker News Editors Grails

Right around a month ago, Sneaker News teamed up with the world’s largest online sneaker collection, Sneakerpedia, in an effort to give you a little bit of background on the personal tastes of the folks who make this site tick. We whittled the most cherished sneakers in our personal collections down to individual top 20 lists, bringing you some background on why those sneakers meant so much to us. But of course, as every collector knows, on the flip side of all our rewarding conquests and acquisitions, there will always be the ones that got away.

This latest edition of our Sneakerpedia team-up is the tale of those models, the ones that we never got our hands on or that we had and may never find again. Mind you this isn’t necessarily a definitive list of our ‘grails’, but rather a compilation of our most personally lusted after releases from amongst the impressive Sneakerpedia selection. Stay with us after the jump for the Top 5 Sneakerpedia sneaker grail lists from our SN editors and let us know if you’ve got any in common with us in the comments below. If you didn’t see your personal favorites in here, head over to the Sneakerpedia archives to see what kind of long-lost heat people are holding onto and feel free to sign up to start uploading your own treasures now.

Sneaker News Sneakerpedia Editor’s Crates: Brendan Dunne’s Top 20 Sneakers

sneakerpedia top 20 brendan Sneaker News Sneakerpedia Editor’s Crates: Brendan Dunne’s Top 20 Sneakers

Our top 20 train is going to keep on chugging today, with the Sneaker News editors coming out from behind the scenes to a certain extent to shed a little bit of light on our own personal preferences and history when it comes to this whole footwear thing. Of course we’re doing so together with the folks over at Sneakerpedia, uploading the most prized items from our own collection onto their massive site, in turn helping to push them a bit closer towards that goal of creating the world’s definitive sneaker encyclopedia.

Fortunately for me I was put through a sort of mini-version of this test already in real life, having recently made a coast to coast move that forced me to shove the majority of my collection away into my brother’s closet and whittle things down to the bare essentials. In those moments of careful culling I was forced to put a fair amount of thought into creating some sort of Nick Hornby-esque desert island top five of sneakers. In the end that group isn’t exactly in line with this group, but they do share quite a few members. Click through as I take you through a journey of pairs, some left of field and some expected, that constitute my top 20 and please note that I’ll be taking on all trolls in the comments below. Just kidding. But seriously, check the list out.
