MEDIA REVIEWS

"Finally, a book on sneakers for fashion scholars! No single item of clothing has played a larger role in American youth cultural history, and Kawamura does a brilliant job of recounting that history, contextualizing sneakers within the post-subcultural moment, and placing them in tension with larger debates in fashion studies." --"Brent Luvaas, Drexel University, USA"

"Kawamura's "Sneakers" convinces that a considered sociology of a single everyday object - albeit an infamous commodity that solicits consumer madness and subcultural respect - creates a worthy interdisciplinary global phenomenon called 'sneakerology'." --"Alison Gill, University of Western Sydney, Australia"
