About the Author

Longtime sneaker-lover Neal Heard has spent many years sourcing, collecting, and selling sneakers. He runs sneakerfreaks.co.uk, a website featuring rare and vintage deadstocks, and the UK clothing label White Riot.


As a pediatrician, writer, wife, and mother, Perri Klass has demonstrated how medicine is integral to the health of families and communities, and how doctors themselves struggle to balance the conflicting needs of profession, self, and family. As medical director of Reach Out and Read, she encourages other pediatricians to foster pre-reading skills in their young patients. While earning her M.D. at Harvard, Klass contributed articles to "Mademoiselle" and "The New York Times" as well as to scientific and medical journals. She also wrote her first book, "A Not Entirely Benign Procedure "(1987), which chronicles her introduction to medicine and motherhood. In the following years she has continued to publish books, essays, award-winning short stories, a novel, and numerous articles, ranging from professional papers to popular journalism and travel pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good place to start your sneaker study Aug. 18 2003
Format:Hardcover
Not unlike a synopsis of the many recent books on the subject, Sneakers, by Neal Heard, takes some of the best elements from its contemporaries and creates a true accessable place to start in the study sneaker culture. It's visually excellent and a must for the sneaker collector or casual "kicks" fan.

Got this for my 12-year-old grandson who loves it and uses it as a reference. Had no idea there was so much written on the subject!
