50 Most Influential People in Sneaker History by Jeff Staple for COMPLEX Magazine


The Internet lends itself to ranking items; whether that be based on fact or opinion. As part of Complex Magazine’s ongoing project that pairs tastemakers with their specialty fields, they recently asked jeffstaple to compile a list of the 50 Most Influential People in Sneaker History. Featuring a host of athletes, designers, CEO’s and renaissance men, the list is thorough – yet completely open to interpretation based on personal preference. In a list full of heavyweights, it should be noted that Hypebeast Editor-in-Chief Kevin Ma sits comfortably between Hiroshi Fujiwara and Tinker Hatfield.
