UK-based creative agency U-Dox have teamed up with publishers Thames & Hudson to deliver the sequel to the classic Sneakers: The Complete Collectors’ Guide which was first published all the way back in 2005. Sneakers: The Complete Limited Edition Guide is a brand new 256 page guide that acts as a global survey and reference guide to the very best and most collectible limited-edition sneaker designs released over the last decade. The official word is as follows:
“Sneakers: The Complete Collectors' Guide was a phenomenal success and a key influence in the transformation of sneaker collecting from an underground subculture into a mainstream, multi-billion dollar business. Following publication of that book, sneaker brands began reissuing classic designs and creating shoes that would spur the second wave of collecting: limited editions and collaborations between the brands, invited artists, designers, musicians and cultural icons. This sequel showcases the very best of this new sneaker culture, featuring more than 300 designs arranged by brand. Each sneaker is accompanied by informative text and a ‘data’ box listing Edition, Pack, Year Released, Original Purpose, Technology and Extras. Essential for both the hardcore sneaker freak and the first time collector, this book will also attract and seduce fashion and design aficionados”.
