"Sneakers" traces the evolution of sneakers from early canvas shoes to the sophisticated innovations, materials and aesthetics of the present-day sneaker, and how it has come into its own as an international fashion staple. It documents sneaker culture on the streets all over the world, and examines how brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Converse, Airwalk and Vans forge distinct identities and loyalties among sneaker fans. More than this, the sneaker is also a versatile canvas for creative and infinitely unique customisations. This volume brings together the most original and inspired work, complemented by insightful interviews with sneaker designers and connoisseurs. Lavishly illustrated with exacting photographs of the most creative sneakers today and the details on them, "Sneakers" is a vivid visual invitation to the world of sneakers and the people who can't get enough of them.
