The latest edition of German sneaker and streetwear mag Praise is out today. Like in the previous issues, I have written the cover story for this one – on the Chuck Taylor All Star.
Even though I am known to not be the biggest Chucks fanboy, the history and evolution of this sneaker icon is naturally something I appreciate. And since all four incarnations of the All Star – from the original model to the Modern – are currently being released, my story focuses on the DNA of the Chuck. For the 16-page spread, the four generations of the All Star were photographed exclusively. And there are four different covers for the issue, each with a version of the shoe! Sorry folks, but: German only!
Praise Mag #05 is now available at selected newsstands in the German-speaking territory. EDIT: The full story (in German) is now available online for free at the Praise website.
