About The Book

A unique collection of works from 20 very different creative minds, THE ART OF SNEAKERS shines a light on the next-level creativity springing from the Jordan Generation.

Sneaker culture is one of the most dynamic forces in the world. It courses through the zeitgeist via fashion, sports, music, and especially art. Creators operating in a wide range of mediums-from sculpture and graphic design to origami and food-have been inspired by footwear fandom.

The Art of Sneakers(@theartofsneakers) shines a light on the next-level creativity springing from the Jordan generation and is a celebration of sneaker art and artists. One artist deconstructs the most sought-after, exclusive sneakers in the world and turns them into dizzyingly intricate masks. Another uses nothing more than pencil, paper, and an insane amount of patience to create stunning, photorealistic drawings of her favorite shoes. Yet another takes shoeboxes and cuts them into hundreds of pieces, shaping them into something like life-size cardboard taxidermy. With all the incredible offerings, thisbook brings together an unparalleled celebration of sneaker culture and the incredible art inspired by themovement.

The Art of Sneakersis presented by snkrINC (@snkrinc)-a media brand representing global sneaker culture. A stunning work of art in and of itself, the coffee table collector's book is meant to serve as an inspiration for all artists, present and future, to make something beautiful from their passions.

" homage to the creative minds of sneaker creators, who took cues from the Jordan generation to push the envelope further. What makes Art of Sneakers interesting is that it tackles the subjet not only from a fashionist viewpoint, but elaborates from angles such diverse as sports, music and art and how the design and influences of sneakers have been informed and influenced by other art forms..."
