Let me save you a trip to find a dictionary (aka Wikipedia) to look-up the word “compendium.” In short, it is a “concise, yet comprehensive complication of a body of knowledge.” And, from the looks of it, that’s exactly what we have here. Spanning from 1917 through today, this 24″ by 36″ print from Pop Chart Lab includes 134 of the greatest sneakers ever to release, beginning with the Chuck Taylor through to today’s Air Yeezy and collabs between Jeremy Scott x Adidas. The print, which will see an initial run of 500, each signed by the artists, doesn’t discriminate by brand or type; instead, it’s a straightforward account of the best of the best from Vans, Etnies, Reebok, Asics, and on and on. And, if this isn’t cool enough as it is, you can even get it custom-framed in a foam rubber sneaker frame. The perfect gift for the sneakerhead in your life (including yourself), they are available now via the Pop Chart Lab online shop.

Air Safari is 87 and Air Max 1 is 1987, but they conflate them with a picture of the Atmos AirMax 1 Safari 2003. I think this was made by people who didn't know shit about sneaks.
