Sneaker Freaker

Issue 44

$10

Sneaker Freaker Issue 44 features a cover story is the Virgil Abloh-designed Louis Vuitton X408. Inspired by Terminator 2, L.A. Gear, Converse Fastbreaks and Billie Jean, the brutal high-tops feature intricate fibre-optics that light up with the press of a button. The X408 concept is detailed in the 20-page Virgil Abloh feature, which also covers everything from his ‘debut’ in Sneaker Freaker Issue 3 to why he signed Lucien Clarke to a Louis Vuitton skate deal.

Virgil isn’t the only renowned designer in the issue. Sneaker Freaker also sat down with AMBUSH® co-founder Yoon Ahn, as well as Versace's VP of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear Salehe Bembury, to find out more about their come-ups and what they’ve got in store for 2021.

The back portion of the mag is a tribute to the pioneers who helped lay the foundations for contemporary sneaker culture.
