‘Where’d You Get Those? New York City’s Sneaker Culture: 1960-1987′ 10th Anniversary Edition

Documenting more than 400 pairs of sneakers in a highly illustrated, chronological format, Bobbito Garcia’s Where’d You Get Those? is finally back in print, in an expanded 10th Anniversary edition. Dozens of subsequent sneaker books have come and gone, but none have come close to attracting the readership and attention this book has received. For example, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania offers a class — Sneakerology 101 — that uses Where’d You Get Those? as its textbook. Updates to the 10th Anniversary edition include new sneakers as well as a foreword, introduction and afterword. Currently available for pre-order on Amazon, the hardcover will be available beginning November 30.
