Certified heat on an unmatched level, or all-too-commonplace these days? PHOTOGRAPHER: COURTESY OF FOURTY-THREE EINHALB Australian sneaker culture has hit something of a plateau. Those still in the game for the rarest, most valuable kicks are still kicking around, if a smaller subsection of the culture (pun intended). The less commited, who came in and out of the scene around the midpoint of the decade, have fallen away, and buoyed by the increasing accessibility of once rare models, the day-to-day sneaker scene is now healthier than ever.
