sneakerpedia JK top 20 Sneaker News Sneakerpedia Editor’s Crates: John Kims Top 20 Sneakers

The Sneaker News staff teamed up with Sneakerpedia to give you, our loyal readers, a taste of the type of kicks that got the Sneaker News staff in the game. We’re a behind-the-scenes kind of group, but after seeing Aaron’s Top 20 stash yesterday, we hope you’ve got a better idea of who and what runs the Sneaker News machine. Moving forward with this week-long exploration of Sneaker News staff kicks, we’ll take a look at my Top 20 with a backstory behind each selection – some sentimental, others a bit embarrassing. Summarizing nearly three decades of sneakers into 20 selections is a tougher task than it seems, but I’m confident the sneakers I chose will give you a better idea of who I am and why Sneaker News and the culture is important to me. Check out my Sneakerpedia Top 20 below and make sure you start your own personal Sneakerpedia Crate now!

Sneaker News Sneakerpedia Editor’s Crates: Aaron Kr’s Top 20 Sneakers

sneakerpedia SN top 20 aaron kr Sneaker News Sneakerpedia Editors Crates: Aaron Krs Top 20 Sneakers

This week, SN is teaming up with online sneaker haven, Sneakerpedia, to give our readers a look into some of our staff’s all-time favorite shoes. We’ll each be doing a Top 20 list counting down some of the most beloved treasures in our personal collections. I’m up first and I admit, I’m not sure that I can really say that these are my 20 favorite sneakers ever, but this is definitely somewhere in the ballpark. If I sat down to make this list in a month or a year, it might look a little different, but these are twenty that I feel particularly strong about right now and fit the criteria of being either out in the current rotation or at least easily accessible.

You won’t find Yeezy’s or the latest Foamposite heat on my list. There are no PE’s, scarce SB Dunks and not even too many Jordans or basketball shoes for that matter, so if that turns you off, you should probably stop reading. You aren’t about to see the 20 rarest, most expensive or most envy-provoking shoes that I own, because as Jay-Z once said, “When I rock jewels, it ain’t to impress you.” These are 20 shoes that I unconditionally cherish for whatever the reason, all hoopla and hypebeastery aside. As a lifelong sneaker connoisseur, my philosophy has always been simple and I’d encourage it to one and all:  I wear what I like and I don’t worry what anyone else thinks about it. And for me, what I like are the classics. For the most part, I like my sneakers how I like my music and movies – from the late 80′s and early 90′s – a theme that will unsubtly play out in the selections found below with no apologies.

Sneakerpedia Crate Of The Month Contest – July/August

sneakerpedia crate of the month july august Sneakerpedia Crate Of The Month Contest   July/August

Over one month ago, Sneakerpedia celebrated its one-year Anniversary by launching the ‘Crate of the Month’ Contest (with one of the inaugural judges being Sneaker News’ own), giving away a pair of Galaxy Foamposites as well as a $300 Gift Card to Foot Locker. The topic of the contest was ‘High-tops’, and a clear winner by the name of FeetHeat was named thanks to his eclectic stash of vintage and new-age basketball kicks. The Crate Of The Month Contest continued earlier this month, and the competition is going to be a lot tougher. Why? Because the winner for this month’s Contest will be the Sneakerpedia member with the ‘Best Nike’ collection. That’s right; it’s a no-holds-barred race to the finish with all-things-Nike good to go. This month’s prize? A pair of the Lunar Hyperdunk Sport Pack and the Lunar TR1 Sport Pack (a $500 value) on top of another $300 Foot Locker Gift Card. Click here for more info and get your Crate goin’ fast because the contest ends August 4th!
