Things got heated in this month’s “Crate of the Month” with Sneakerpedia fans going head-to-head showcasing their ‘Best Nike Crate’. This iconic sneaker category saw some incredible collections submitted and guest judges Nacho Puig (Spain), Kish Kash (UK) and Hadnet Tesfai (Italy) really had their work cut out choosing a winner. Picked from a huge amount of entries, the winning ‘Crate’ was chosen from a shortlist of five contenders, with the winner just beating his rivals to top spot.
The winner of this month’s “Crate of the Month” title is nickair75 who blew the guest judges away with his impressive collection of Nikes. Guest judge Kish Kash said, “nickair75 is a worthy winner with a variety of styles from cross trainers and basketball kicks all the way to runners, and there’s also Free and Lunarlon shoes which shoes a discerning eye for future sneaker technology”. And Spain’s Nacho Puig agreed, “this guy has some old school classics like OG Jordans and Space Jams that will be remembered by all and some of the most ‘dangerous’ releases ever like the Dave White AJ1”- he’s a deserved winner!
The full Crate of the Month result is as follows:
Winner – nickair75
Runner Up – Cee210
Third Place – Mayhem
Crate Cee210 wasn’t far behind in second place with a great collection of sneakers from the past and present. Guest judge Hadnet Tesfai said, “a cool mix of sneaker-nostalgia and hot new pieces, I love the athletic approach to his collection”, and Kish Kash added, “this guy has a great display of depth with earlier retro’s to current rare models”.
Third place went to Mayhem who’s impressive collection of Nikes in different colorways and styles impressed the judges, particularly Kish Kash who said, “there’s some sick runners from an OG Spiridon to Homegrowns and Structures and extra points for the Grey Max 1’s with the small swoosh on the toe”.
Also worthy of mention in this month’s competition in fourth place is #35 BobaFett, with his extensive and passionate story accompanying his entry. And in fifth place went to #1 Nike Air Matt, who deserves credit for his collection that was based on old school memories with some sick colorways thrown in.
