Four streetwear forums for release information, news, and fashion inspiration

New to streetwear? Here are four streetwear forums for you to check out.

1) Reddit

Streetwear Forums

With over 600 thousand readers, /r/streetwear is not a forum to scoff at. The fashion forum is a great provider of information for those looking for fashion inspiration, information on the latest drops, or simply a place to discuss what some mainstay streetwear grails are.

In November 2017, design student Dan Hart-Davies released the first fashion magazine based off the Reddit forum. The magazine was aptly named /r/streetwear and featured 98 pages (source).

2) Niketalk

Niketalk has been credited as one of the original forums that helped boost streetwear’s current popularity and relevancy (source). In addition, some streetwear lovers also claim that the popular What Did You Wear Today (WDYWT) thread first stemmed from Niketalk (image below).

Like its name suggests, the forum is devoted to sharing information solely related to Nike and Jordan Brand. A quick glance also revealed that Niketalk’s general forum boasts over 10 million messages. To date, Niketalk’s sub forums have expanded to include release information for Nike products around the United States, Canada, and the Phillippines.
