The 50 Most Influential People In Sneaker History

27. Simon Wood

Who And Why: Founder and editor of Sneaker Freaker
Years Of Influence: 2002-present

Woody is the founder of a still-thriving sneaker print publication that comes out on a consistent basis. And in a world dominated by digital social media, I think it’s important that we still have individuals that document (and print) this kind of stuff. Thirty years from now, we’re not going to scroll through thousands of online pages to show our grandkids what we thought was dope. We’re going to whip out a physical book and say, “Look through this, this is why I got into sneakers.”
