“Deadstock” refers to the originals: authentic, unworn sneakers that were produced for limited-edition releases, limited-run re-runs, or pairs that have otherwise stopped being made. No longer available from the direct retailers, deadstock is the most desirable, exclusive, and valuable merchandise in existence, only available from select resell shops and websites such as Larry Deadstock’s.

In 1,000 Deadstock Sneakers, deadstock collector and infamous reseller Larry Deadstock teams up with streetwear journalist Fran├žois Chevalier to dive deep into the origins, history, and trends of international sneaker culture. This book features:

The origin story behind the first pair of Air Jordans

Basketball legends Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan

Groundbreaking designers such as Virgil Abloh

Influential figures like Will Smith, Spike Lee, and Travis Scott

Informative anecdotes from Larry Deadstock

Original advertisements from Nike, Adidas, Air Jordan, New Balance, Rebook, Vans, and more

Complete with detailed research, historical context, and trend analysis on the aesthetic appeal of each style, this book explores the significance of the sneaker in fashion and culture today through 1,000 coveted deadstock sneakers of the last 50 years. This is a must-have reference text for sneakerheads and deadstock collectors; eye candy for sports fans, influencers, and all sneaker wearers; and an exploration of a rising phenomenon in fashion and streetwear for anyone interested in contemporary American culture.
