There are things that a real sneakers-addicted must have such as the new book “Sneakers: Limited editions – Collector’s Guide.” Let’s find out together.
This book is the result of the previous success of the first volume: “Sneakers: The Complete Collectors’ Guide” released in 2005.
After 9 years, the boys at the London-based creative studio U-Dox have created the second edition, a work intended as the natural evolution of a wide-ranging project that aims to capture the most beautiful and meaningful limited edition proposals in the last 10 years.
In fact, there are more than 300 partnerships, created and developed by leading sneaker brands in synergy with the top designers of the time and with the most prestigious stores on the market; names such as: Adidas, Nike, Puma, Asics, New Balance, Reebok, Vans, Ronnie Fieg, TinkerHatfield, Jeff Staple, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Hanon, Mita, FootPatrol, Patta, Supreme, and Colette just to name a few.
Some Limited editions also involve fields seemingly far from the world of sneakers, such as the world of cinema and art; in this book nothing is far removed.
Would you like some examples of what you can find and learn? Here!
Did you know that Samba “Lionel Messi” are so limited that only 5 pairs were produced?
Then there are the Adidas Superstar 1 proposal for the 30th anniversary of Star Wars,
the AsicsGT-II “Seventh Seal” inspired by the legendary Bergman film The Seventh Seal, the high-tech Nike Yeezy made with Kanye West,
and the colorful and perfect fitting “Keith Haring” Reebok Classic.
Many partnerships yet, at the same time, given everything that may have been released in the last 10 years, this book is the result of reasoned selection and thought right down to the last choice.
Aside from the content of utmost importance there is also a lot of care given to the graphics, high quality photographs, eye-catching layout and very complete and clear texts. The organization of the content is also made easy, with chapters organised by brand and in alphabetical order, while the only peculiarity is the last chapter that makes a mix of sneakers by brands that do not have a chapter to themselves.
In short, this is a book that you can hardly do without!
