Very interesting concept. Well put together but wish they had interviewed more people regarding subject matter. I had no idea that guys were hoarding tennis shoes like women hoard high heels!

Documenting a culture
Jon Marin | Elmwood Park, NJ | 07/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am an avid shoe collector and have been this way for years. I go on forums and talk about shoes. I got my first job the summer of last year, just to get two pairs of shoes. I applied for a job at a major shoe retailer just to get first dibs and a discount for Christ's sake. Shoes are a big deal for me. So when I heard about Just for Kicks I was excited. Another thing, I am an aspiring filmmaker and my dream project is a documentary, like this, that caters to people like me. And unlike a lot of other documentaries I've seen, I wanted to do something that dug deep into this culture.

Just for Kicks is one of the greatest documentaries, and not to mention most insightful, that I've ever seen in years. I never sat through a movie that almost felt like it was made for me. Another thing is that my knowledge of shoes is so vast and it never occurred to me that this movie would teach me things that I didn't already know. It covered so much on the culture, from Run D.M.C. claiming their possessions on "My Adidas" to the Air Force One phenomenon of recent.

I had an idea for a sneaker documentary myself and as of recent I started doing more research to find out what I didn't know and champ all the other documentaries. But now, I feel like I can't beat this movie. This is top of the notch and no other film can document this movement as well as it was documented in Just for Kicks. Interviews with huge figures in this culture such as Scoop Jackson, Bobbito Garcia and the greatest designer of all time Tinker Hatfield gave this film a huge plus.

This film serves as a historic recording of this culture that can be very beneficial to those wanting to start this hobby. I strongly recommended this film to those people and those nostalgic collectors that like looking back at these images and reflecting on the past.

The in-depth interviews in the special features are incredible. Especially the one with Tinker Hatfield."
Essential SneakerHead Viewing

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very entertaining documentary about the evolution of the sneaker culture. Although it gives you a general look into the world of the SneakerHead it leaves the shoe beast wanting more."
