Calling all Female Sneaker Fiends! New Book: Girls Got Kicks by Lori Lobenstine

by Intern Candice

Any female sneaker fiends out there? Being in New York, besides the color black, there is nothing more powerful than the sneaker. The right pair can make your whole outfit! So, there is no wonder that there are sneaker heads the world over sharing their love and stocking up their shelves with the newest, freshest, and most colorful. Even I become weak in the knees when I see nice sneakers (sigh).

If you’re like me you’ll be excited to learn about the new book Girls Got Kicks, the first ever photo documentary of badass females told from a unique angle: their passion for sneakers. The book written by founder of, Lori Lobenstine, and illustrated by Amanda Lopez, gives you a heavy dosage of FSF culture featuring sneaker-inspired artists like Claw Money, Vashtie, and Married to the Mob.

If you’re in the NYC area you can come pick up your copy of the book at the book release party today (5-8pm) at Goliath, New York’s only female-owned sneaker boutique. Get your book signed, meet the author, and most importantly-check out kicks! You know you want to.

Never fear for those of you not in NYC though, you can buy the book from here, too. (And this way the author and photographer get some money.) Or check their site, above, for more dates for the book’s tour!
