I would never, ever have envisioned myself reading two tomes devoted to athletic footwear. The first, surprisingly, was good. This one is even better. To me a shoe is a shoe is a shoe. Obviously that is far from true. Being from a relatively small Midwestern city and a stranger to malls and boutique stores, I was unaware of some of the unique, trendy and interesting designs that athletic shoe manufacturers have created. Who knows, with the stock market as shaky as it is, and gold having lost its luster maybe I should invest in specialty footwear. A fun book for those who follow this trend and an eye opener, a pleasant one, for those oblivious to it.

Sneakers: The Complete Limited Editions Guide was a great help for my upcoming passion project. The produced gave many pictures and descriptions of the shoes and the companies that make them. The book gave explanations on how major companies like Nike, Adidas, Jordan and Asics gear towards certain types of style and play and each have their own signature style. They go over collaborations and the designers who made the most popular sneakers and signature styles for professional athletes. Overall this is a great pickup for any sneaker lover or who wants to find out more about how sneakers have evolved became so popular.
