18 - A Collective Memory of the ‘90s w Nic Galway & Ben Jones

12/8/2016
More
The cultural impact of the ‘90s on today’s culture is clear. From runways to magazine editorials, the period’s visual language is an endless source of borrowed nostalgia for modern creatives. For those, like me, who grew up in the ‘90s, pop culture peaked. Musically, heavy metal was out and grunge came in, while hip-hop began to reinterpret its own roots in sound to a new consumer looking for new. BMX and skateboarding, two very street-level sports, were picking up large market sponsors...

17 - How to be a Successful Independent Retailer

11/30/2016
More

It’s an upscale evolution of DIY zine culture, which saw the proliferation of niche publications like Cometbus, Factsheet Five, and Profane Existence—each one offering a unique perspective on alternative culture. But now brands and high-profile artists are getting in on the action. Kanye West released zines for his two previous Yeezy...

10 - The Men Saving Your Soles

7/20/2016
More
Meet the men repairing and restoring vintage adidas and Jordan sneakers. In a world where sneakers are bought and traded, and where unworn status can account for massive differentials in value, there is another school of sneaker head, not looking for crisp, deadstock pairs. This collector prefers their kicks worn, beat and used, saving many from the trash. Sneakers, with glued soles and non-welted construction, were never meant to be repaired, yet a growing number of modern cobblers are...
