About the Author

"As a history of how so much of the world came to be shod in running shoes, SNEAKER WARS is a book you'll read at a sprint. Drawing from dozens of interviews and stacks of documents, Ms. Smit reconstructs an anecdote-rich history of competition, commercialism and corruption." -- Wall Street Journal"Smit brings a keen reporter's eye to the schism between Puma and Adidas. The book also ably tells the broader story of the red-hot global sneaker trade." -- Conde Nast Portfolio"What does David Beckham's superstardom have to do with a pair of warring Bavarian brothers in the early 1900s? More than you think, according to this compelling book." -- Time Magazine"Barbara Smit deserves high praise." -- Sunday Telegraph"First-class piece of investigative reporting... enthralling narrative tale... invaluable contribution to our understanding of shoes, sports, corruption." -- David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author of Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball's Last Hero"SNEAKER WARS is great for understanding the ins and out of the industry." -- Bobbito Garcia
