Steve, the Kobe issue was my first issue. After sending payment to the UK subscription manager (Brian) yesterday, I got the issue today so props to him for being insanely quick and super friendly. Now, I'll be honest, being fairly new to trainer culture (change 'trainer' to 'sneaker' if your US!) I wasn't expecting too much... Maybe 50 pages, well put together but lots of pics with no articles per se. I couldn't have been more wrong?!!! A HUGE issue that puts most high street publications to shame in every aspect. Artistic direction, quality of articles and crystal clear, beautiful photography in a issue full of interesting and informative writings. I couldn't give a sh*t if there is a worldwide economic crisis, SOMEONE GIVE THESE MEN A RISE! You deserve it 150%. Absolutely brilliant guys, I'm a subscriber for life.
