A few months ago, Howie kahn, Alex French & Rodrigo Corral, the minds behind Sneakers The Book, reached out to me to get my shoe story; how ConceptKicks started, where my journey started and where it’s continuing to lead me.
With stories from over 60 industry legends, from Tinker Hatfield and Jeff Staple, to Ronnie Fieg and Virgil Abloh, the book is filled with incredible stories from iconic shoe industry leaders.
I received my copy of the book yesterday (which came in a mini shoe box), and the whole project is just beautifully executed. I’m super humbled to be sandwiched between two industry icons, Tiffany Beers and Tom Sachs, at what imo, is the best chapter number in the book, 23.
The book is now available for purchase (here), we’re also planning a London launch event later next month so make sure to stay tuned for that if you happen to be in the area.
