OUT OF THE BOX: THE RISE OF SNEAKER CULTURE

I guess it is safe to say i was part of history when i attended the very first exhibition in North America to look into the sneaker culture. It was held at the the Bata Shoe Museum on 327 Bloor Street West, downtown Toronto. It started showing from early Spring -April to June, but i was there in May which explains my choice of outfit. I love history but i love style some more. For me it was important to see this exhibition because it is nice to see how much culture has really influenced today's style. Most especially a certain type of shoe -Sneakers.
It sure felt like sneaker shoe heaven walking in between a beautiful display of sneakers aging longer than some of our grand parents, such as the iconic Converse sneakers that debuted in 1917 (See below).....

......to the futuristic looking pairs that may just seem rather too much for my personal taste. Likes of the Jeremy Scott for Adidas 2013 (See below). Regardless of what i think, these are classics and have made the sneaker industry a billion dollar industry today.

 
While some of these shoes were borrowed from likes of Run DMC and Shatell Martin for the show, some were donated to Bata Shoe Museum for keeps.
It was nice to be there and just see these shoes myself, watch famous artist such as Jay Z talk about the rise in sneaker culture right there as it played on a screen.  This is me over sharing. Pardon my the photo overload.

Nooooo, this is not the entrance to the Museum or anywhere around it. Just decided to re-shoot the outfit for this post somewhere around a school building.
All the sneaker photos were taken by me





Thank you all for stopping by. Now your comments.
