With the original premise thatSneaker Freakerwould be “funny and serious, meaningful and pointless at the same time”, this theme has certainly been carried over inThe Ultimate Sneaker Book. With more than 650 pages, jam-packed with insider knowledgeand Sneaker Freaker owner Simon "Woody" Woods' own irreverent observations, the insane historical detail and otaku-level minutiae is beyond obsessive.
Compiling 100 years of history, each chapter paints a boisterous picture of the sneaker industry’s evolution. Air Max, Air Force, Adi Dassler, Converse, Dapper Dan, Dee Brown, Michael Jordan, and Yeezy—along with obscure treasures like Troop, Airwalk, and Vision Street Wear—are all exhaustively documented.
This is a definitive source of knowledge. This is…The Ultimate Sneaker Book!
