Sneakers are part of popular culture. Those of you doubting this, have never seen the poster “A Visual Compendium of Sneakers” from Pop Chart Lab – here are the best and most legendary 134 sneakers of the world displayed on one poster.
A meticulously illustrated collection of the 134 greatest sneakers in human history, starting with the Chuck Taylor way back in 1917, progressing through the styling low-tops of the 60s and 70s, delving deep into the great sneaker explosion of the 1980s, and carrying through the instant classics of the modern day.
Includes everything from ageless Adidas designs, the many, many permutations of Air Jordans, groundbreaking skate shoes like Vans and Etnies, monsters from the golden age of Reebok (such as the Shaq Attack and Alien Stomper), and the high-fashion collabs of today like Jeremy Scott x Adidas and the Air Yeezy.
Pop Chart Lab produces the graphic out of 271 g/qm paper in archive quality, which is FSC-certified, of course. The poster is printed in an Offset-procedure with vegetable ink and it is delivered in a gift box. All the working steps take place in Brooklyn at Pop Chart Lab and each specimen is limited to 1000 pieces, numbered and signed by hand by the designer.
