Truman's Book Club: 'Sneakers: The Complete Limited-Editions Guide'
By Julien Sauvalle
As athletic footwear turns into a high-fashion statement, it's sometimes difficult to keep track of who's designed what, and for who. Thankfully, the release of Sneakers: The Complete Limited Editions Guide gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the best (and rarest) sneakers from the past decade.
In this "sequel” to the best-selling Complete Collectors’ Guide, published in 2005, the U-Dox team is back to showcase the most noteworthy collaborations, such as Nike’s work with New York graffiti artists Futura and Sash, Reebok’s collab with superproducer Pharrell Williams, or the first Jeremy Scott "Wings" shoe for Adidas. Featuring over 300 pairs, with stunning photography detailing every inch of these of highly-coveted kicks, your closet will suddenly feel very, very empty.
