When Made For Skate first published 10 years ago it was the most thorough and authoritative book on skateboard shoes on the planet. This bigger, better 10th Anniversary edition adds over 200 pages of new content with previously untold tales of skate shoe lore. Highlights include : the true history of the rise of the legendary brand - Airwalk, the secrets of the longest-running professional skateboard shoe franchise - the Vans Caballero Pro series - and the genesis of the world's best-selling skate shoe - the Nike SB Janoski. More recently, Tyshawn Jones, Thrasher's 2018 Skater of the Year has been making waves with his first ever signature shoe with adidas. Made For Skate features first-hand accounts and commentaries by leading skateboarders, shoe designers and artists including : Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, Lance Mountain, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Natas Kaupas, Pierre André Senizergues, Don Brown, Claus Grabke, Paul Rodriguez, Chad Muska, Danny Way, Mike Vallely, Adrian Lopez, Eric Koston, Mark Gonzales, Elissa Steamer, Dennis Busenitz, Tim Gavin, Tony Ferguson, Chet Thomas, Ed Templeton, Keith Hufnagel, Arto Saari, Geoff Rowley, Stefan Janoski, Nyjah Huston, Cara-Beth Burnside, Steve Van Doren, Walter Telford, Lenny Holden, James Arizumi, Brian Reid, Jeff Mikut, Damon Way, Jeremy Fish, Andy Howell, Todd Bratrud and many more.

With over 1000 photos of shoes and graphics, Made For Skate reveals a fascinating behind-the-scenes profile of the evolution of footwear, and skateboard culture at large. This is a story about big personalities, art, design, engineering and above all, a serious investigation of the fashion and cultural influence of the street.
