The cover star of Issue 45 is a world-first preview of the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance collaboration. Sneaker Freaker’s managing editor Audrey Bugeja goes deep with Joe as he explains the background behind the follow-up to his ‘No Emotions Are Emotions’ project. This is another deeply personal Joe Freshgoods narrative sourced straight outta the late 90s, but there’s a serious political point to be made, one that we’ll let Joe explain in his own inimitable words.
Next up Sneaker Freaker visit Camden, New Jersey, where Byron and Darien Gans have amassed an incredible collection of game-worn pro-models and vintage relics that are all on display at their Shoe Kings store. How this discombobulating shrine to vintage sneakers has not blown up already is a mystery, but Air Rev’s freewheeling 5000-word interview certainly does justice to the sibling’s unique story. If you’re looking for an antidote to the money-grubbing cynicism personified by the ‘Ann Hebert’ reseller kerfuffle, then this interview, like a good mixtape, will put you in the right mood.
