The Brooklyn Museum will have an exhibit this summer on the rise of sneaker culture. The exhibit will look at look at the “social history, technical innovations, fashion trends, and marketing campaigns that have shaped sneaker culture over the past two centuries.” About 150 sneakers will be on display from all the the major brands (Nike, Adidas, Converse, etc), as well as private collectors such as Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, sneaker guru Bobbito Garcia, and Dee Wells of Obsessive Sneaker Disorder.
The show opens July 10th and will go until October 4th. You can get more details here.
