    At the beginning of the 1995 football season, Hans van der Meer set out to take a series of football photographs that avoided the clichéd traditions of modern sports photography. In an attempt to record the game in its original form, he sought matches at the bottom end of the amateur leagues. Preferring neutral lighting, framing and camera angles, he chose to pull back from the central subject of the pitch, locating the playing field and its unfolding action within a specific landscape and context.

    Van der Meer began by focusing on sites within the Netherlands and later his European odyssey took him from small towns in the remote regions of Europe to the fringes of the major conurbations of Greece, Finland, England, France, Germany, and more.

    This isn't our World Cup fever talking... there is some incredibly touching about Van De Meer's work and we just can't take our eyes off it.

Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.

    This much-anticipated sequel to the classic volume Sneakers: The Complete Collectors Guide is a global reference guide to the very best and most collectible limited-edition sneakers that have been released over the last decade.

Following publication of that book, sneaker brands began reissuing classic designs and creating shoes that would spur the second wave of sneaker collecting: limited editions and collaborations between the brands and invited artists, designers, musicians and cultural icons. This sequel showcases the very best of this new sneaker culture, featuring more than 300 designs arranged by brand. Each sneaker is accompanied by informative text and a data box listing Edition, Pack, Year Released, Original Purpose, Technology and Extras. Dive in!
