Colorful Kicks

On a wave of rampant sneaker customization comes a clever and rather timely coloring book by Andrew Freeborn. The footwear fan has compiled his black-and-white drawings of classic kicks and is leaving it up to you to fill in the lines. If you can't quite afford to high-roll at the Nike iD Lab, dust off your crayons and create your fantasy pair from home. The book features over 25 shoes from yesteryear and today by Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Converse, Saucony, Asics, Reebok, Puma, and Vans, as well as sneaker-themed games like a word search, a maze and connect-the-dots. Whether for yourself or your hipster-in-training toddler, the book is available online for $14, including shipping. While the resulting designs won't be very wearable, they're sure to bring out the creative side in even the smallest of shoe lovers.
