First released in 2008 and later released in the updated version seen below last year Art & Sole: Contemporary Sneaker Art & Design is a complete record of the trend towards “artist” series released from the sneaker industries big brands up until 2008. The dream of many customizers was to have their own chance to design a colorway or theme to be made in mass by Nike, adidas, Puma, etc. This book gives you an idea of who and what has caught the attention of brands enough to give artists or independent art brands their own sneaker. Names like Futura 2000, Jeremyville, Kid Robot, Mr. Cartoon. While the next half goes into a few who have made their mark creating art related to sneakers: Nash Money, Dave White, INSA, Sneaker Pimps, Parra and more. This is the perfect reference to know a bit of what has been done and things to inspire in case of a creative block.
