A Guide to the Coolest Limited-Edition Sneakers in Shoe History

There are sneakers, and then there are limited-edition and highly collectible sneaker collaborations. A new book chronicles some of the most stylish shoe partnerships in history—and treats these kicks with the respect they deserve.


The frenzy for limited-edition sneakers has reached a fever pitch, but it's certainly nothing new. In fact, shoe brands were doing special partnerships that people loved long before the recent riots over Supreme and Nike's Foamposite collaboration.

With that in mind, the timing of the new book Sneakers: The Complete Limited Editions Guide couldn't be any better. Throughout its nearly 260 pages, the tome chronicles some of the most important shoes that major brands like Nike and Adidas have created with fashion houses, design firms, and even celebrities like Halle Berry. Here's a look at some of the best.
