FAQ: Adding Pictures to the Sneakerpedia

Air Jordan 5 (V) Grapes

When we first began the blog, we shared some ideas on how to make Sneakerpedia the best wiki possible. Now that we have more and more sneaker enthusiasts worldwide adding their favorites to the site, we’ve got another way for you to help take it to the next level. You can even show off your photography skills or your own way style in the process.

On each sneaker page, the first image you see is the standard image of shoe but our friends Elliot Curtis (@vitaminthick) and Josh Cole aka wideangle have helped make some of the wiki pages even better by adding additional photos. We can all agree that just a single photo doesn’t do any sneaker justice, especially with all the details that make them so special.

Even though a sneaker may already be uploaded to, we all have a unique style in how we display our kicks, photograph our kicks, and wear our kicks. So the next time you are clicking through the Sneakerpedia wiki and you think of cool photo you took of one of your favorite pair, add it to the wiki page for that shoe to show off your own personal style. You can upload extra pictures of your favorite detail of the shoes, the box or accessories it came with, or maybe you like to swap out the laces for a different color, all of these would be a great way to help make the wiki better. Remember, it’s up to the sneaker community to make Sneakerpedia great.

Battle of the Sneaker Events: Sneaker Con, Sneakerness Recaps

This past weekend there were a number of choices for sneaker enthusiasts to get into trouble at. We of course mean, the good kind of trouble, where you come home with a couple pairs of new kicks and have trouble finding a place to put them, or have trouble keeping them off your feet on the way home.

In the US, it was Sneaker Con returning to NYC that spawned some creative video seen below, while Switzerland hosted the Sneakerness crew in Zurich.
