With incessant hysteria surrounding each Yeezy release and buzzy celebrity collaborations hitting shelves daily, it can be hard to remember the sneaker has a surprisingly storied and long-ranging history.
A new photo book from Mathieu Le Maux, 1000 Sneakers, provides some context. It runs through some of the most iconic—as well as bizarre—variations to hit shelves over the past century.
The motley collection reveals that just about every corner of culture, from fashion and art to hip-hop and sports, has left an imprint on sneaker history.
This book includes enduring favorites like the Adidas Jabbar, the Puma Clyde, the Nike Air Force 1, and the Sk8 High Vans, though you'll have to buy it to see the full line-up.
For kicks, we figured we'd leave you with six of the flashiest and most outlandish options to ogle.
