The seminal sneakerhead print publication turned ten this year, as Sneaker Freaker celebrated its first decade with three collaborative releases inspired by their Australian homeland (plus another friends & family exclusive with BBC overtones). A look back to the first SNKR FRKR reveals how much has changed, and what a magical thing was brewing in 2002 when the magazine got its start, some of the foundational boutiques opened across the globe and Nike Basketball’s Sole Provider hardcover foreshadowed some significant changes thanks to various applications of their retro styles. One could argue that modern publishing technologies and the current wave of sneakerhead culture would have resulted in the scene as we know it today even without their presence, but Sneaker Freaker adds the kind of personality, attention to detail and pure passion for kicks that makes them synonymous with this era; a trusted institution for years to come.
