CREPE CITY magazine returns with their fourth issue, continuing to develop and progress the idea of a magazine dedicated to sneaker collecting and the surrounding fashion, art and culture.
Issue 04 builds on the changes made in issue 03, putting to use the larger format and further exploring their partnership with renowned London based typographers Colophon Foundry. The premium paper stocks, luxurious finishes, and high quality content that garnered the magazine attention from issue 01 set the base that issue 04 is built on, while the inclusion of a pull-out poster by photographer Mark Leaver, and the addition of a third cover option sees the magazine continue to develop and challenge itself.
Known and appreciated for its tactile qualities, CREPE CITY magazine has taken this a step further with the Nike Air VaporMax ‘touch & feel’ special edition cover, putting to use the latest in manufacturing technology to bring the striking sole of the shoe to life under your fingertips. A fitting dedication to the most technologically advanced Nike shoe to date. While that cover looks to the future of Air Max, the alternative Nike cover celebrates its roots and showcases the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Master’. The third cover focuses on adidas’s continued elevation of their NMD line, taking the hot-red that the brand have adopted for 2017 and putting it to full use with a vibrant Pantone.
Inside the magazine, the regular Archive section inspired by the archival magazines of Japan returns, featuring Parisian collector Lalla Boudmagh aka Superllalla of Masters of Air fame. Continuing to focus on the people and cultures connected to sneakers, this issue sees interviews with Ronnie Fieg, Dave White, Round Two, Guillaume Philibert of Filling Pieces, as well as the people behind adidas BOOST, Spezial, and the new PUMA TSUGI SHINSEI. Exploring the cultural impact of sneakers, this issue delves into the relationship between the Reebok Classic and music subcultures, as well as the impact of the Nike Dunk SB on both skateboarding and sneaker collecting.
