The cover star of Issue 45 is a world-first preview of the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v3 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 point to be made, one that we’ll let Joe explain in his own inimitable words. Next up we 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. Air Rev’s freewheeling 5000-word interview certainly does justice to the siblings’ unique story. On another trip entirely, Happy Trails is an 80-page look at the current hype behind the off-road gear. Teki Latex’s love of GORE-TEX, Mowabbs, incongruous layers of apparel and harnessing the ‘abstract flow of energy’ make for highly entertaining and enlightening reading. Aside from that, you can expect the usual assortment of fresh news, salacious gossip, artist exposes and highly opinionated speculation. Grab your copy of issue 45 now and read all about it!
