Already in 2002, Simon Woody Wood had come up with plans to get free sneakers. Two weeks later he was the proud owner of Sneaker Freaker and his life was never the same.
From its beginnings as a punk fanzine to today's super slicks in print and online, the independent publication documented all Collab, Custom, Limited Edition, Retro Re-Issue, Quickstrike, Hyperstrike and Animal Zero sneakers that have been released in the last 15 years.
Woody's original premise that Sneaker Freaker would be both "funny and serious, meaningful and meaningless" was certainly confirmed in the Ultimate Sneaker Book. With more than 650 pages of insider knowledge and disrespectful observations, the crazy historical details and minutiae on Otaku level are more than obsessive.
Each chapter looks back on a 100-year history and shows the evolution of the sneaker industry. Air Max, the Air Force, Adi Dassler, Converse, Kanye, Dapper Dan, Dee Brown, Michael Jordan and Yeezy as well as obscure treasures like Troop, Airwalk and Vision Street Wear are well documented.
This is a definitive source of knowledge. This is … the ultimate sneaker book!
