Billed as “one of the illest children’s board books around,” the book is an illustrated guide that crosses sneaker culture with the alphabet.

A collab between kid streetwear company Little Giants Giant Shorties and Complex magazine designer David Park, it’s 28 pages of shoe-letter illustrations for your future Converse convert. Even better, it’s labeled “Volume 1” ⏤ so you’d assume more are to follow.
