Summary
"Every Sneaker Story Worth Telling! A 15 year anthology of cult magazine Sneaker Freaker. When self-acclaimed Sneakerhead Simon "Woody" Wood decided to pursue his love of sneakers--and freebie footwear--with a publication, the mighty Sneaker Freaker was born. From its punk fanzine style first edition in 2002 to today's slick print and online operation, the independent magazine has remained at the fore of the global sneaker scene, documenting every collab, limited edition, retro reissue, Quickstrike, custom shoe and more, with raw, fastidious passion. This massive anthology celebrates 15 years of Sneaker Freaker, featuring the magazine's finest pages together with over 130 pages of expert sneaker content never seen before. As "funny and serious, meaningful and pointless at the same time" as the magazine's own ethos, the book packs in more than 650 pages of dense insider knowledge, hundreds of beautiful photos, as well as Woody's own obsessional observations. The book rollicks through some 100 years of sneaker history, documenting Air Max, Air Force, All Stars, Dapper Dan, Michael Jordan, Reebok Pump, and Nike Skateboarding, alongside more obscure treasures like Troop, SPX, and Vision Street Wear. All the major sneaker moments are all there, from Kanye to adidas Futurecraft, Nike Air Force 1 to New Balance, as well as landmark collabs, leading advertising campaigns, and crux talking points, not least Nike vs adidas. All Sneaker Freaker pages have been meticulously redesigned for this book edition, with fresh updates bringing every story up to speed, while preserving the charm of the original prose. Through all the limited editions, customs, retro reissues, and samples, this is the definitive source of sneaker knowledge you'll love as hard as your Beaters"--
