I do have a bit of a love for shoes. To be honest my shoe collection would even make Carrie Bradshaw say “that guy’s got a problem”. (Yes, I just made a Sex in the City reference… so what?)
I didn’t realize the full extent of the problem until the other day I caught myself looking at pictures of my wife and me on vacation and thought… I miss those shoes.
White and tan leather Puma sneakers. Man, I loved those shoes.
I’m shoe obsessed and I know it.
For those of you who share my obsession, Toronto’s Bata Shoe Museum in collaboration with Toronto Loves Kicks have launch a new exhibit which chronicles the history of sneakers and the evolution of sneaker culture.
The exhibition features over 130 shoes included rare and contemporary sneakers. It also chronicles their birth and innovations over the years. Rare samples from Reebok and Adidas are on display featuring a signed Anniversary Superstars from RUN-DMC. Sneaker connoisseur Bobbito Garcia’ s Bata x Wilson x John Wooden shoes from 1977 are also there for your view pleasure.
Sneaker heads this one’s for you. The Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture exhibition at the Bata Shoe Museum will be open until March 30, 2014.
Thanks to Patrick Cornish and Asphalt Oracle for the pictures.
