A Day in Brooklyn

My daughter and I are sneakerheads so going to the Brooklyn Museum to see “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” was a must. Most if not all the viewers wore sneakers. The show covered the earliest known sneakers and how they became ingrained in the culture. There were lots of videos including tennis matches and old advertisements. A very interesting and fun exhibit. If some of those old sneakers could talk!

It would be difficult to pick out a favorite pair but maybe I’d pick these Giuseppe Zanotti red ones. They probably would have retailed for about a thousand bucks.  

 
The show was a lot of fun and amazing how they amassed all those great sneakers!

    I’d never given much thought to sneakers, but this still sounds like a fascinating show! I think hubby would really like it. He’s a sneaker aficionado. 😀
