Nick Glackin : Sneaker Photography

Nick Glackin | The Style Raconteur

Art & Sole recently did an article on Nick Glackin who is someone Ive followed on Instagram for a while now. His sneaker photography is one if not THE best in a staturated genre on Instagram…take a peek

Manchester-based photographer Nick Glackin, aka Glackster, has taken the concept of footwear photography to a whole new (and much smaller) level…

Everyday, thousands of photographs of sneakers are being posted onto the Internet through various social media channels, inevitably getting replaced or forgotten about the following day. With this in mind, Glackin went about creating a more interesting way of photographing shoes, utilising a selection of miniature model figures to set various scenes.

The scenarios he creates with the figures (many of which are custom painted) will often reference a particular element of the relevant shoe. Whether that be a nod to the colourway name, the overall theme of the shoe, or even the cultural relevance it holds within the sneaker scene.

Etonic x Coogi Trans Am

etonic | the style raconteurOne of the biggest trainer brands in the Eighties, Etonic is making a comeback this year – starting with this collaboration between the brand and Coogi, a knitwear label made famous by Notorious BIG in the Nineties.  This particular shoe based on their staple Trans Am style. It has multicoloured woven upper very similar to the Coverse x Missoni a few years back. This has a much more premium finish hence the £295 price tag. Watch this space as the brands nears the relaunch.

Nike Flyknit Racer White/Black-Volt

nike-2014-summer-flyknit-racer-pack-1Flyknit racer was my sneaker of choice last summer and it looks like I’ll be beating the same this summer because the Beaverton powerhouse has officially added another colourway to its summer offering. Balancing some bolder colour choices including a new Volt mock-up as well as a Laser Crimson iteration with a low-key monochrome version in black and white. Only available in the US up to now but expect a UK release soon.

Erik Schedin’s Sneaker Collection for Comme des Garcon SHIRT

Comme-Des-Garcons-Shirt-Erik-Schedin-Sneakers-2-630x441Erik Schedin‘s simple, unfussy sneakers were originally part of his 2004 final degree show at Beckmans College of Design, Stockholm. Four years later they were being stocked at the likes of Dover Street Market, Mr Mudd & Mr Gold and his own online store, a small selection of cleverly chosen goods. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of their release, Schedin has got together with Comme Des Garçons SHIRT for Spring 2014, taking that clean white canvas and adding three black images. Production having moved from Vietnam to Italy, the shoes are still fitted with the same sole sourced for his early project. Sold exclusively at Dover Street Market, find them here.

Big feet. Stop reading now! Nike has just released the Lunar Flyknit Trainer in a sunny colourway that blends orange and yellow with volt accents, but unfortunately it’s a WMS release so if you are bigger than a 9 ½ prepare for disappointment. The Sneaks are available now from Nike Running Women’s accounts.
