In 2002, Simon "Woody" Wood devised plans to get free sneakers. Two weeks later, he was the proud owner of Sneaker Freaker, and his life was never the same.

From its beginnings as a punk-style fanzine to its current super-slick print and online operations, the highly independent publication has documented every collab, custom, limited edition, retro reissue, Quickstrike, Hyperstrike and Tier Zero sneaker released over the past 15 years.

Woody's original premise that Sneaker Freaker would be "funny and serious, meaningful and pointless at the same time" is certainly vindicated in The Ultimate Sneaker Book. With more than 650 pages brimming with inside information and his own irreverent observations, the frenzied historical details and otaku-level minutiae are beyond obsessive.

This is a definitive source of knowledge. This is...The Ultimate Sneaker Book!

Traversing 100 years of history, each chapter paints a rousing picture of the evolution of the sneaker industry. Air Max, Air Force, Adi Dassler, Converse, Kanye, Dapper Dan, Dee Brown, Michael Jordan and Yeezy - along with obscure treasures such as Troop, Airwalk and Vision Street Wear - are all extensively documented.

Simon "Woody" Wood is the founder and editor of Sneaker Freaker magazine. In just over a decade, the Australian has created a unique global brand at the forefront of the sneaker industry, publishing in more than 50 countries. Sneaker Freaker is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.
