Description

The definitive primer on the world’s most popular shoe: the basketball sneaker. Basketball shoes have a long and
storied history both on and off the court. Back in the 1930s, a basketball sneaker was created for straight-up
performance. Today, hoops footwear do double duty: they’re designed for and by elite players, but to sneakerheads, how
they look is nearly as important as how they perform. SLAM Kicks breaks down the path of the basketball sneaker, from
the birth of the very first iconic shoe, the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star, to the white-hot best-selling
cultural-phenomenon Nike Air Jordan sneaker line. This book showcases the hottest basketball kicks over time, throwbacks
and new shoes alike, covering each legendary sneaker and its design, the technical advancements found in the shoe, the
athletes who made the shoe famous, and the cultural waves the footwear has made off the basketball court. Featured
sneakers also include the Adidas Jabbar, the Puma Clyde, the Nike Air Force One, the Reebok Question, the AND1 Tai Chi,
the Nike Zoom Kobe IV, and many others. SLAM Kicks: Basketball Sneakers That Changed the Game is the perfect gift for
basketball-sneaker fans and street-fashion enthusiasts alike.
