Lavishly illustrated and remarkably comprehensive, this is an insider's account that traces trainers back to their early days as tennis shoes and through the sneaker culture of New York. Showing how a small and dedicated group of consumers proved instrumental in establishing current corporate giants like Nike and Adidas, Garcia's commentary perfectly complements the rich array of photographs, focusing on the golden years of 1970-1987. With everything you wanted to know from the production, distribution and consumption of sneakers, this is a fun, fabulous book.
