UPDATE: I’m hoping that my self-published book ‘Soleboy’ about my life – and others’ lives – in shoes will be published in late August/early September 2016.
The book looks at the social history of men’s shoes over the last sixty years and how they have been at the forefront of youth cults and movements throughout this period. The role that boots, trainers, shoes and (even) sandals have played are all investigated in a thorough and entertaining manner. Featuring interviews with people at the forefront of the business of footwear to those that just love shoes the book will be in selected shops and online this Autumn.
I will endeavour to keep folk updated over the next few weeks and months with full synopsis, excerpts, additional related information, cover artwork, publication dates etc.
