    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. The first volume was a phenomenal success and a key influence in the transformation of sneaker collecting from an underground subculture into a mainstream, multi-billion dollar business. 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!
