book club: the sneaker coloring book

    test out that new color converse before you even buy them.

    Are sneakers and coloring books like two peas in a pod?

    Though you'd probably answer “no,” or even “far from,” the two share a surprising amount of similarities:

    1.    Though reminiscent of childhood, neither enforces an age/height limit.
    2.     Just as anyone can rock a sneaker, using a coloring book requires neither a prerequisite nor any talent.
    3.    They both signify a good time.

    Created by Daniel Jarosch and Henrik Klingel, The Sneaker Coloring Book unites two of our obsessions.  The book consists of 100 blueprint-eque images of popular sneaker models since 1916 (think everything from the Converse “All Star” to Reebok's “Court Victory Pump). 

    The best part: each page comes with a perforated edge for easy, rip-free tearing.  Anyone want to collaborate on a sneaker exhibition?
