Flickr asks you if your a sneaker freak… some people answer the call. There are well over 4000 shots of sneakers in the one page I viewed while searching for sneaker freaks alone. Now I know some of those are duplicates because a picture can belong in multiple groups, but I think it is easy to say that there are plenty of pictures to look at if you are into that sort of thing.

The focus today is on a group called, “Are you a Sneaker Freak?” on Flickr. The have 1,585 photos of sneakers (sorry no shoes) and 290 Members in the group. This is what they are about:

To do some trainerspotting on a global scale – take a happy snap of the sneaks (trainers) you have on right now. Let’s celebrate this comfy shoe cultural phenomenon.

There are some real nice (and even wallpaper size) photos of sneakers on the site. crazy ray and dajaystar are usually good for a wallpaper size shot (but in the smaller range though I.E. no bigger than 1024 x 768).

If your into Converse, then highchucker is your person of interest in the group.

    I run a website for collectors and we just did a special Sneaker Week feature. Thought you might be interested in checking out the interviews and sweet sneaker pics.
