Editorial Reviews

Nikki Giovanni
"I like it. I like it. 'Sole Food' is fun and funny and warm. We all need soul and we all need food. 'Sole Food' does it all!"
dj fountz
"It is an interesting look into the tales and thoughts of a genuine sneaker-head. Those who are part of the culture will fully enjoy and identify with King's work, and even those outside of the culture will be able to easily see what makes the sneaker-head tick. I am only disheartened by the fact that he loves and yearns for those ugly Ewings so much."
