Out Of The Box: The Rise Of Sneaker Culture



This book contains a groundbreaking traveling exhibition that showcases sneaker culture - from the mid-nineteenth century, to modern sport performance breakthroughs and present-day cultural icons. Drawn from the collection of the Bata Shoe Museum and other significant archives, this selection is richly contextualized with interviews and essays by design innovators, sneaker collectors, and cultural historians - creating a backdrop of the technical innovation, fashion trends, social history, and marketing campaigns that shaped the culture over the past two centuries. Out of the Box also includes sneakers ranging from an 1860 spiked running shoe, to Air Jordans, to the original Air Force 1s, and other noteworthy developments from the past, to contemporary sneakers by prominent figures such as Jeremy Scott, Jeff Staple, and Kanye West - making it the definitive illustrated history of sneaker culture.
