There is no doubt that streetwear has become a phenomenon, and here in the Philippines, it’s all about sneakers. Sneakerheads, the term for enthusiastic sneaker collectors, have actually been around far longer than most people think; the earliest fans used to get their sneaker news from chatrooms, e-mail threads, and niche print publications.

Now, with the Internet, sneaker enthusiasts have more sources and avenues to share and learn the newest information on sneakers. With social media’s lightning speed as well as the sheer number of people who care about sneaker culture, fans are also able to receive the hottest sneaker news in real-time.

Apart from our site, here are just some of the best sneaker websites, from here and around the world, where you can get the most current sneaker news.

1| Highsnobiety

Practically every streetwear fan and sneaker addict has heard of Highsnobiety, arguably the leading authority on street culture worldwide. The site focuses more on the culture as a whole rather than just on footwear with in-depth features and reportage. Highsnobiety is for the sneaker fan who wants a good read along with the sneaker news he should be paying attention to.

2| Hypebeast

One of the true pioneers of sneaker blogs, this website introduced the word “hypebeast” to our lexicon. The sneaker and streetwear portal, founded by Kevin Ma, is known for its unparalleled taste. Hypebeast is at the forefront of every designer drop and high-profile sneaker collaboration, as well as exclusive news that other websites aren't privy to thanks to its wealth of contacts in the sneaker industry. The website has also grown to cover lifestyle stories that fall within the sneaker fan’s range of interests such as music, movies, and art.

3| Sole Collector

Founded in 2003, Sole Collector is one of the original sneaker blogs (it even had its own print publication) that still enjoys a large following today. The 16-year-old website contains a wealth of information on past releases and iconic sneakers in its archives, along with the latest sneaker news, in-depth stories, and important details on major releases. With its quality content, it’s no wonder that the site has stuck around.

4| Modern Notoriety

If you’re the type who enjoys lots of imagery, then head to Modern Notoriety. Alongside sneaker news, the website features striking pictures for readers who would rather see than read. Modern Notoriety is practically made for those who want to fawn over the newest shoe releases.

5| Sole Movement

Launched in 2008 by Martin David, Sole Movement quickly grew into an online authority of the sneaker and street culture in the Philippines. After David observed how fans tend to buy because of hype and then fall off the bandwagon over time, he created the site to provide a deeper understanding of street culture. He single-handedly produces the content of Sole Movement, working with shoe brands and retailers so that readers can get a first look.

6| Nice Kicks

Nice Kicks was one of the first sneaker blogs to transition into a digital authority on sneaker culture. Now, the website boasts of a sophisticated interface and quality stories that only a reputable sneaker outfit can produce—it’s all thanks to a highly experienced team, which has founder Nick Halfhill at the helm. Expect Nice Kicks to churn out exclusives, great videos, and critical yet helpful reviews on much-coveted sneakers.

7| Sneaker News

Its name really is self-explanatory. Sneaker News, one of the oldest sneaker websites, showcases a clean design and a user-friendly interface, where fans can easily find new releases as well as news reports that interest them. What it lacks in overly stylized aesthetics, it makes up for in function and helpful content. Check back from time to time for guides, Jordan release dates, and other relevant sneaker drops.

8| Sneaker Freaker

Sneaker Freaker started in Australia and was one of the world’s first publications that provided an insider look into the sneaker culture. Along with its biannual print releases, the Sneaker Freaker website is a rich source of information on all things sneakers, from exclusive stories and collector interviews to new releases and a sneaker store guide. Unlike most websites that transitioned to a more lifestyle mix, Sneaker Freaker very much remains in its footwear niche.

9| Sneakers.fr

The website is in French, but that hasn’t stopped sneakerheads from visiting it and enjoying its wealth of insights and information. Paris is the world’s fashion capital. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Sneakers.fr has emerged as the digital authority on sneaker culture, not only in France, but also in Europe. It’s a good reference for trends that are popular over there, but haven’t quite reached other parts of the world just yet. Also, the site is known to have connections to information not found on American websites.

10| US11

US11 is based in Japan, where the streetwear scene is another beast entirely. As the website primarily features photos and links, it’s not too difficult navigating it even if you can’t read the language. The website is known for aggregating some of the best sneaker content around, including photos of sneakers that have not been seen before such as those from NBA showcases. This is a must for sneaker fans that want to be ahead of everyone.

11| Sneaker Files

Although it also features other shoe brands, Sneaker Files is a website solely dedicated to sneakerhead favorites such as Air Jordans, Nike, Adidas, and Yeezys. As it aggregates some of the latest sneaker news in the scene, the website is a reliable source of information for the latest drops.
