For over a decade, jeff staple has influenced the way our culture operates. From his consulting and design gigs with brands that range from Nike to Apple to Burton, to the retail experience he crafted through the Reed Space stores, there are few people globally to have such influence on all things early adopt-able and consumable.

When it came time to lock down our latest "Top 50," jeff made a lot of sense. He's been collecting sneakers since before a lot of us got into the game, and he has the industrial and graphic design experience to speak intelligently about what makes a pair of kicks great. Check out jeff's Top 50, and be sure to stay up on his site stapledesign.com, and follow his musings via @jeffstaple on Twitter.
