THE BUTCHER’S BLOCK TV: JEFF STAPLE TALKS HIS COMPLEX MAGAZINE SNEAKER LIST
Frank The Butcher caught up with Jeff Staple to chat about his '50 Most Influential People In Sneaker History' list over on Complex. Though some may say it's controversial, it's fairly obvious (and is pointed out by Jeff himself) that this is more of a personal list, so being too concerned who's on that list isn't really the issue. What's important to me is the title of the piece, which can't be under stated or misconstrued; This is a list of the 50 most INFLUENTIAL people in sneaker history, and not the 50 most IMPORTANT people in sneaker history, as the list would for sure be completely different if it was the latter (and have a lot more shoe designers in it). None the less, this is a very interesting interview and it's always great to hear the opinions of someone so highly regarded in the design & streetwear scene.
