Two key volumes chart the phenomenon of sneaker culture in a rich tapestry of stunning images and compelling stories
The universe of collectable sneakers, a contemporary phenomenon of global proportions, is presented here in two groundbreaking volumes. In the brand-new Next Size Up, voices from the worlds of fashion, sport, design, art, and music speak to today's sneaker culture explosion from every angle. And a reprint of 1998's hugely successful Size Isn't Everything, which set the template for all other sneaker books that followed it, brings the story back to its roots, offering a freeze-frame of sneakers' earliest heroes, from Snoop Dogg and Spike Jonze to athletes, teen idols, moguls, and more. Covering much more than design, including issues such as criminality, counterfeiting, value for money, fashion, and beyond, these two books offer a complete and highly covetable tribute to what is much more than a fashion obsession.
