Trainers, sneakers, kicks or creps; whatever you like to call them have undeniably broken through the confines of being known as strictly functional sporting footwear. Trainers have been breaking gender, culture and class boundaries since the 19th century and have unified the masses in making this type of footwear an essential part of everyday fashion.
Soleseekers The Film documents the rise of UK collectors, inspectors and respecters of trainers affectionately known as “sneaker heads” from all backgrounds, races, and religious beliefs, banded together with one unifying purpose; to find the holy grail of trainers through their appreciation of trainer culture.
