Art & Sole: Contemporary Sneaker Art & Design by Intercity is a nicely packaged survey on the fairly recent phenomenon of artist-designed sneakers. Limited edition and customized sneaks are the stars in this colourful catalogue of work that blends art, industrial design, fashion and sports. Indeed, these sneakers are more collectors' items than footwear. After being seduced by the many photos in this book, even the non-aficionados will have chosen at least one or two pairs for themselves.
