Our sister site Racked National scored an interview with the founder and head-Freaker of Sneaker Freaker magazine—that iconic sneakerhead tri-annual publication—Simon Wood. How, exactly, does this footwear connoisseur store his 1,000 pairs of kicks? And does he have any that he just won't wear—no matter what? Also, which sneaker brand makes you take your shoes off at headquarters if you're not wearing the right brand? All the answers here. [RNA]
