Throughout the past year Sneakerpedia has been tweaked and changed in an effort to make the user experience more appealing. As part of our one year celebration we wanted to announce the newest addition to the wiki, the Crate of the Month. This new promotion will give #sneakerholics who contribute to the wiki and follow the theme of the month a chance to win some great prizes. To kick off the promotion starting today the winning crate will win a pair of Foamposite One “Galaxys”!
The theme for the first Crate of the Month is High Tops. To help with the judging we’ve selected a panel of sneaker aficionados for their expertise. Our three inaugural judges are John Kim from SneakerNews.com, Dylan Hughes from Vice Magazine UK, and football star Darren Bent of Aston Villa. New judges will be selected on a month-by-month basis. Read up on all the rules and information on the Crate of the Month page on the wiki and good luck!
Sneakerpedia, the greatest online sneaker archive, celebrates its one-year anniversary this month. Created to unite the sneaker community and showcase the largest sneaker collection on earth, Sneakerpedia has already made a giant footprint on the sneaker world. Since its inception in May 2011, the site has attracted some of the most influential sneaker aficionados worldwide, including Elliot Curtis, Bobbito Garcia and DJ Clark Kent, and users have published and shared more than 12,600 sneakers, to date. Today, a new chapter begins in the Sneakerpedia story as it launches a host of inspired additions to the site, including sneaker-obsessed guest bloggers, celebrity sneaker stories and the introduction of the “Crate of the Month.”
“It has been an exciting year to watch the sneaker community embrace Sneakerpedia and help build this incredible online repository of sneakers for all to enjoy,” said Stacy Cunningham, EVP Marketing, Foot Locker U.S. “Sneakerpedia was born to connect sneaker enthusiasts from all over the world, and we are steadfast in our mission to be the Wiki for every sneaker ever created and the greatest online sneaker archive in the world,” continued Cunningham.
As part of the one-year anniversary celebration, Sneakerpedia has introduced “Crate of the Month,” a highly exclusive award for the most deserving sneaker collection. Users are tasked with uploading their “crates” based on the theme of the month and celebrity judges will select the winner who will receive a special prize. The theme for May will be “high-tops” and the prize for the top crate will be a pair of Nike Galaxy Foamposites.
For the inaugural May promotion, Sneakerpedia has handpicked a series of influential collectors from the fields of sports, fashion and culture from all around the world including Footballer Darren Bent (UK), Dylan Hughes, editor of Vice Magazine UK (UK), and John Kim, senior editor of Sneaker News (United States). In addition to judging the contest, they will be putting their sneaker obsession to good use sharing their own sneaker passions, collections and stories with the Sneakerpedia community on the blog.
