Soled Out is out now

Big up to Woody for this amazing new gem.

900 vintage sneaker ads.
720 insane pages.
100 athletes.
13 action-packed chapters.
12 years in the making.

As the title suggests, SOLED OUT is an exploration of the print advertising produced to sell 
sneakers in the 20th century. From McEnroe and MJ to Hulk Hogan and Sigourney Weaver, 
this is the 20th-century sports industry expressed in its own grandiose prose and 
muscular image. Work on SOLED OUT started back in 2009, so you could say it has been 
more than a decade in the making, though it was always in brief respites between projects. 
To quote the man himself.

"Only masochists and hardcore completists make books this big."
