Before there were “Shoe Idols”, Before Facebook, Before Twitter, Before Youtube, Before Sneaker Reviews, There was Niketalk and Sole Collector. These two main Sneaker News sources were embraced throughout the Sneaker Community before the influx of the coming years that were ahead. Then there were also the classic Sole Collector events. The originator’s of the Sneaker Competition and Exclusive Sneaker drops for every event. Though these day’s are long gone, These pictures tell a story of the OG’s before us that have been in the game since the beginning. After the Jump, You can peep a few pics from the Sole Collector Event Las Vegas in 2006 courtesy of KATC.
