Just thought I’d give you a quick heads-up about a cool exhibition coming up which you might wanna check out. Online shoe retailer Javari has put together what looks like a pretty awesome exhibit all about “tracking trainers’ journey through popular culture”. It features sneakers from the personal collections of a handful of stylish celebs, as well a fairly in-depth look at the development of the sneaker over the years and their relevance in contemporary social and popular culture. It covers all sorts, from the earliest 1960s Vans releases to the most recent Yeezy-mania and Isabel Marant ‘Bekket’ wedge-heeled sneakers that have burst onto the scene in recent months.
The details are as follows:
Where: Covent Garden Piazza, Market Building, Central Avenue, London, WC2E 8RF
When: 18th-28th October 2012
Opening hours: 9am – 7pm
I’ll definitely be checking it out, and if you want to get a little bit more insight or info on where the current sneaker scene came from and where it’s going, it would definitely be worth a visit. I mean, come on, it’s FREE!
