In recent years the sneaker scene has exploded with artist and designer collaborations. These specialist shoes are produced as short runs, using innovative or luxury materials, and often have bespoke packaging. Some even push the design of the shoes themselves, creating hybrids or new incarnations of classic designs.
Focusing exclusively on contemporary, cutting-edge sneaker design, Art & Sole sets out to explore and to celebrate the creative side of sneaker culture – showing the best and most original rarities and collaborations. These are not shoes that can be found in your average sports store.
This book is a must for any enthusiast of sneaker design or collector of the shoes themselves.
'Compiled by London graphic-design studio intercity, this is a colourful feast for all sneaker freaks.'
'Art & Sole not only incorporates the necessary sole and soul wordplay, but is a great document that caught us out with its dense content, layout and level of research...'
'Art & Sole Contemporary Sneaker Art & Design explores and celebrates the creative side of sneaker culture, showing the most original rarities and collaborations, and showing the latest art and design.'
