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.

The original version is available from Amazon, and the 2013 10th anniversary version is also available from Amazon or Testify Books
