We’ve always loved our comfortable and good-looking kicks. If you have a penchant for sneakers like we do, and you're a self-proclaimed sneakerhead with an eye for design—new and classics—as well as the culture and history surrounding this global industry, Slam Kicks is for you. It takes this particular shoe-appreciation to a new level. Published by Rizzoli, and compiled by Slam Magazine editor-in-chief Ben Osborne, Slam Kicks is a visual history of basketball shoes and their designs and influences, on and off the court. With contributions from various well-known writers, journalists, celebrities, and enthusiasts, Slam Kicks is not only a visual treat, but an informative and well-written one too. Available in book stores worldwide and online at rizzoliusa.com and randomhouse.ca.
