Every other site on the Internet will have their year-end lists (for better or worse), us included. But my personal favorite happens to be Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012 just because it comes in paperback form printed on quality paper and includes snazzy pics. Sure, you can read the complete list online with a few clicks but holding it in your hand and thumbing through the pages is a totally different experience. Now in its third year of production*, hats off to Yu-Ming and the SN team for carving a niche.
Pre-order the book here. I’m picking up two copies: one to rock, one to stock.
* – Anybody holding a copy of the 2010 issue, sell it to me
