“Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture” is the ultimate book about sneakers and the subculture surrounding it. Learn about all the untold stories, the best models, the unreleased collaborations and much, much more.
In fact, “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” is almost like a rite of passage. It is really something that most sneaker aficionados feel is also a part of them.
Following the exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum comes the book, edited by Elizabeth Semmelhack, Bobbito Garcia, and Emanuele Lepri. Sneakers, its history, the sports, its social and economic frame, all of this is part of “Out of the Box.
All of this began more than two centuries ago, with the first sports shoes, and the picture now is almost overwhelming. The editorial work includes info and pictures of the archives of adidas AG, Nike Archives, Reebok Archives, but also of private collectors.
It also includes insight into the work of people like Tinker Hatfield and silhouettes by prominent figures like Damien Hirst, Jeremy Scott, Jeff Staple, and Kanye West. Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture is now available at select stores and also at Amazon.
