The Best Sneaker Freaker Magazine Covers Ever: 2002–Now
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 45 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 a highly limited number remaining at the SF HQ library. That said, we’ve poured our hearts and soles into every issue, so we’ve collated some of our favourite Sneaker Freaker covers to date.
Issues 1–10: 2002–2007
Issues 11–20: 2008–2010
Issues 21–30: 2011–2014
Issues 31–40: 2015–2018
Issues 41–48: 2018–2022
