Much respect and love goes out to Derrick not solely for the book but for your efforts to help everyone step their game up on a daily bases. You see a lot of "how to" videos on youtube but when you want to do something correctly this is the dude to checkout. I've followed him from my start till now and the amount of knowledge he wants to share is amazing because most ppl would rather keep it for themselves. Much love brother keep it up! If your just starting, got a little knowledge or even been doing this for years this is awesome info to keep handy or share with ppl that are interested in what goes into sneaker customs and restorations.
No second guessing anymore
This is a great book , cant wait to get the rest of them . alot of great information to do great looking and long lasting work!
