Art & Sole is both a book and an online resource that celebrates the creative side of sneaker culture; featuring the best artist / designer sneaker collaborations, as well as showcasing artists who based their work on sneakers – from sculptures made from dissected shoes, to oil paintings on canvas. Not content with simply writing about all the creative collaborations out there, Art & Sole also currently curate two projects based on the theme of art and sneakers. The second of these curatorial projects, and the basis for the collaboration with Stereohype, is entitled A Few Of My Favourite Sneakers. The project is an ongoing series which sees Art & Sole commission select artists and illustrators to draw their favourite sneakers. Individual artists are asked to draw ten sneakers in total, and illustration collectives can submit one sneaker per artist. The results of the project so far can be seen within the AFOMFS category on the Art & Sole website, and selected images from the series are also available to purchase as limited edition giclée prints through the Art & Sole shop.
