Now in its ninth year of publication, Japan’s SHOES MASTER presents volume 19 for Spring/Summer 2013. As evidenced by the cover, the new issue of the biannual release focuses on the great outdoors and features trail footwear from the likes of Merrell, La Sportiva, Montrail, and more alongside insights from retailer OSHMAN’s and a retrospective of classic Nike ACG silhouettes. As usual, the issue also includes an in-depth look at this season’s footwear offerings and includes editor’s choices as well as a guide to Tokyo’s seemingly endless parade of sneaker shops. SHOES MASTER Vol. 19 is set to hit newsstands this Friday, March 29 for ¥690 JPY (approximately $7 USD).
