In the history of sneaker culture, few names are referenced as heavily as Patta, whose prior work with Nike has since become the stuff of legend. And in recent years, the Amsterdam-based streetwear brand has continued adding to their lesson plan with new, wave-inspired editions of the Air Max 1 as well as collaborative colorways of both the New Balance 991 and Air Jordan 7. While many of the label’s older offerings have become extremely rare, these newer collabs are readily available right now on eBay Sneakers.

Although he’s become a household name over the last two years, Joe Freshgoods has been schooling the world on what it means to be fresh in the West Side of Chicago. The 30-something-year-old creative has proven his talent with several collaborators (including 7-Eleven and New Era), but has struck gold with New Balance. JFG has lent his story-telling prowess to classics like the 992, but has also helped usher in new models like the 90/60. A newly-formed partnership with Vans further demonstrates the American designer’s insatiable hustle.
