Sneakers Wed, Jul 08, 2015
Beginning on July 10, the Brooklyn Museum will have an exhibit called,The Rise of Sneaker Culture. According to Elizabeth Semmelhack, senior curator of the originating exhibition at Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum, when sneakers first launched in the 1800's, they were a luxury item due to the high cost of rubber and the lack of free time for most workers. It's quite interesting to see how sneakers have evolved and how they continue to influence fashion. What's your favorite sneaker?
