The Best Sneaker Freaker Magazine Covers Ever: 2002-2020

Tinker sneaker freaker mag

We’ve got our toes dipped in so many sneaker pies nowadays, it’s easy to forget Sneaker Freaker is still the world’s only international sneaker magazine. First printed in 2002, the first issues rode on the DIY punk fanzine movement, resembling something closer to a homemade brew rather than the professional publication it is today. However, nearly 20 years and over 40 issues later, our ‘funny and serious, meaningful and pointless all at the same time’ ethos remains very much intact – despite ditching that corny OG graffiti font.

The first edition of Sneaker Freaker is now a coveted collectible (we printed just 3000 copies), with just three left intact within the SF HQ library. That said, we’ve poured our hearts and soles into every issue we’ve done, so we’ve collated some of our favourite Sneaker Freaker covers to date.
