Welcome to the first instalment of the Sneaker Book Club, where we share some interesting tomes of anything and everything covering footwear. The only stipulation is the books have to be in print format, as we’re romantics for flicking through pages in our hands. We talk shoes all day, put it on the Internet, and also on paper. You’ve already bought Issue #41, right?
First off, is A Brief History of Speed, published by Nike in 2004 to coincide with the Genealogy of Speed exhibition. It’s quite a rare little book – it doesn’t pop up for sale often, and very little information is available about its production. Guess who got their hands on a copy though? Yours truly.
