Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Yes, people don't just wear limited edition sneakers; they collect them; and as this comprehensive, 256-page guide demonstrates, some do it with enviable perseverance. Like U-Dox International's 2004 Sneakers: The Complete Guide, this handbook to limited edition casual footwear sets a new standard in the field. More than 300 designs from fifteen brands are featured in illustrated sections and the burgeoning market in direct collaborations is represented with 100 examples. The perfect starter kit for dealers and collectors.
