From the ground up

This fantastic piece of work is a meticulously illustrated collection of the 134 greatest sneakers in human history, starting with the Chuck Taylor back in 1917, progressing through the styling low-tops of the ’60s and ’70s, delving into the great sneaker explosion of the 1980s, and carrying through the instant classics of the modern day. Including everything from ageless adidas designs, many permutations of Air Jordans, groundbreaking skate shoes like Vans and Etnies, silhouettes from the golden age of Reebok, and the high-fashion collabs of today like Jeremy Scott x adidas and the Air Yeezy.

Each print is signed by the artists and numbered from a first printing of 500, and comes packaged in a custom Pop Chart Lab Test Tube. Using 100 lb. archival recycled stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, this poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with vegetable-based inks in Flatlands, Brooklyn.
