Sneakerheads, head on over to the Brooklyn Museum. Starting this month, The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition to explore the complex social history and cultural significance of the footwear now worn by billions of people throughout the world.
The exhibition includes about 150 pairs from the archives Nike, Adidas, Puma, Reebok, and Converse, as well as those from private collectors.
There will also be sneakers by Prada and other major fashion labels, as well as artist collaborations, including ones from Damien Hirst and Kehinde Wiley.
The exhibit runs through October 4, 2015.
