Overview

Sneakers are an essential fashion and lifestyle statement and have become a form of self-definition for both the average person and the kids in cutting-edge subcultures. A true sneaker aficionado can tell a vast amount about a person's style, values, music tastes, and attitude to life just from the brand they wear. Sneakers pays tribute to this most versatile of shoes, and charts the history of the sneaker. With over 300 styles included, from old-skool Adidas to the newest lines from Reebok, from Nike's latest high-tech offerings to the legendary Converse All Star, all photographed in full color, this compendium of casual shoe style tells you everything you ever wanted to know.
