Publisher: Testify Books
Publication Date: 2003
ISBN: 1576871797, 978-1576871799
This is the book documenting sneaker culture and its development in NYC. Bobbito Garcia timelessly and meticulously documents the brands, models, colorways and situations that led to a shoe’s popularity or downfall. With quotes from his close friends, all sneaker fiends themselves, this book is truly the King James Bible of the real sneaker collector. It was re-released on the 10th anniversary in 2013 with a different cover.
Sneakerature’s Take: If you only own one book about sneakers, do yourself a favor and make it this one.
