Perhaps "Sneakerheadz" needs a sequel, one that more directly interrogates the shoe manufacturers themselves about the hazards of pumping up so much hype about their product.
The film places some blame for shoe addiction on media hype, yet it's also culpable of feeding that frenzy.
According to an unattributed title card, "sneakers are estimated to be responsible for as many as 1,000 deaths per year." If that is true, this documentary buries and tramples the lead.
With subject matter so esoteric that an onscreen glossary is provided, Sneakerheadz will leave you shaking your head even as the showcased colorful footwear inevitably induces sneaker envy.
To those who don't already have a vested interest in the subject matter ... Sneakerheadz may well come off as a glossy paean to consumerism.
Don't be surprised if respectful reviews and admiring word of mouth entice even older viewers who haven't worn the sort of footwear exalted here since they sweated out high-school P.E. classes.
Overall, I felt that Sneakerheadz did sneaker culture proud.
A slick, stylishly-edited doc that manages to be illuminating and easy-to-follow.
An entertaining movie that celebrates the simple happiness a fancy pair of sneakers can bring.
Ultimately content to be merely a survey, rather than an in-depth investigation.
It's the really well-structured, tongue-in-cheek American history as told by brilliant knuckleheads that makes this one a must-see.
