A fun, lyrical picture book, Kicks is an essential read for sneaker fans of all ages, from award-winning poet Van G. Garrett and illustrator Reggie Brown.

“​A brilliantly written and illustrated ode to sneakers and sneakerheads, young and old. A gift to us all.”

—Angie Thomas, #1 New York Times best-selling author

This is a love letter to sneakers. But not just any sneakers. Only the flyest, floatiest, you-est kicks you can get—the ones that let you soar!

This colorful, rhythmic adventure has something to offer anyone who prizes a great pair of shoes and any reader who loves to play with words.
