photography by Steve Mullholand, Kevin Roberts, Alex "Retrokid" Wang, Zac Dubasik, Vincent Clervi, Nick DePaula & Logan Carrington

Our last ten years have been nothing short of amazing.

Whether it was pulling up to Tracy McGrady's mansion for our first ever celebrity cover shoot, showing Penny Hardaway the Half Cent for the first time, or going behind-the-scenes with Tinker Hatfield, Eric Avar, Ken Link, Jason Petrie and countless other designers as they created footwear that would change the industry, we've seen it all over the past decade.

Now, to cap off our celebration of the Sole Decade, we'd like to showcase the 60 best photos ever featured in Sole Collector Magazine. From once-in-a-lifetime images of Kanye West working on the first Air Yeezy in the Innovation Kitchen, to Tinker Hatfield's letter that would go on to birth the entire Cross Training category, enjoy a dive into some of the gems we've been thrilled to cover through the years.

Let us know your favorites in the comments section below, and we can't wait to see what our next 10 years has in store.
