  • Where'd You Get Those?


Upon its initial publication in 2003, Where'd You Get Those? was hailed by Vanity Fair as "The perfect primer on the sole of pop culture a much needed compendium." The New Yorker raved that "Garcia's book is an anthropological trove," while the New York Post noted that "Where'd You Get Those? is a must." Vogue gushed: "Garcia chronicles the gym shoe's rise to cultural prominence with obsessive detail Where'd You Get Those? is a welcome addition to New York cultural history." Paper magazine called it "The definitive book on the rise of sneaker fanaticism," and Time Out New York hailed it as "a rhapsodic, comprehensive chronicle."

Documenting more than 400 pairs of sneakers in a highly illustrated, chronological format, Where'd You Get Those? is simply a stone cold classic. Sneakers are fetishized by consumers worldwide, and dozens of subsequent sneakers books have come and gone, but none have come close to attracting the readership and unfettered adulation that this book has enjoyed. (Carnegie Mellon University even offers a class, Sneakerology 101, that uses Where'd You Get Those? as its main textbook.)

Updates to the new edition include new sneakers inaugurated into the canon, as well as a new foreword, introduction and afterword.
