Farewell, Sneaker Freaker Forum: 2002-2017

After 15 years and more than half a million posts (goddamn!), the Sneaker Freaker forum will be officially shut down this weekend. Spambots and archaic code have plagued us for some time now and crippled the board beyond repair – and so it’s time to say goodbye to a much-beloved part of Sneaker Freaker history. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed over the years, and an extra-special thanks to Brendan and Mik for all their hard work keeping the board in check.

We’ll be keeping the forum up for another day, so if you want to make one last contribution to the WDYWT thread, reflect on the clumsiness of your early collecting days or tell everybody the size of your Chucks, this is your last chance!

It's always hard to close a significant chapter, and we can't help but feel a little sentimental, but with the end of the Sneaker Freaker forum comes the birth of something pretty cool that we've been working on for a while now... stay tuned – all will be revealed on Monday.

Until then, keep your laces loose!
