ggk front cover for websmaller 428x540 Book: Girls Got Kicks Launches Today!

For anyone who knew of us about five years ago, we started as a column called Chicks With Kicks on Highsnobiety. Our love for a good pair of sneakers even in our more posh Snobette digs has remained untouched. In the HighSnobette universe, four-inch heels and sneakers are just as sexy as tight jeans, a Fleet Ilya harness or a Chanel suit. Illustrating the love  that many of  us have for le sneaker Lori Lobenstine of Femalesneakerfiend  teamed up with Amanda Lopez to bring you “Girls Got Kicks,” a photo book documenting women and girls in their kicks:

Girls Got Kicks… the first ever photo documentary of the badass females, told from a unique angle: their passion for sneakers. From celebrities like WNBA Rookie-of-the Year Tina Charls, legendary b girl Rokafella, and “Downtown’s Sweetheart” Vashtie Kola, to extraordinary young women famous only for their obsessive love of sneaker, Girls Got Kicks celebrates the beauty and diversity of female sneaker fiends the world over. Whether they’re running home in the rain barefoot to save their precious kicks or tearing them up at the skate park, whether they’re matching them to their wedding dress or their basketball uniform, Girls Got Kicks documents how these sneaker lovers push beyond stereotypes, using kicks to be both athletic and sexy, hip and tomboyish, grown and youthful, as they define who they are—and who women can be—on their own terms.

 Launching today at Goliath, you can get your copy here.  A peek at the photos on the flip.
