The Rise of Sneaker Culture is organized by the Bata Shoe Museum,whose aims are to explore the social history,technical innovations,fashion trends,and marketing campaigns that have shaped sneaker culture over the past two centuries.You cannot overestimate the cultural importance of a pair of sneakers.At least that's the conclusion from a new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in the US.
The sneaker is regarded both as a cultural force and a fashion statement."Early sneakers were actually status symbols."said Elizabeth Semmelheck,senior leader of Bata Shoe Museum.
Displaying over 150 shoes,the exhibit covers a wide range of examples and will last about three months.From their modest origins in the mid-nineteenth century to high-end sneakers created in the past decade,sneakers have become a global obsession(痴迷).Included are works from makers such Adidas,Converse,Nike,Puma,and Reebok as well as private collectors such as hip-hop legend Darryl "DMC" McDaniel's,and Dee Wells of Obsessive Sneaker Disorder.Also featured are sneakers by Prada and other major fashion design houses and designers,as well as those made in cooperation with artists including Damien Hirst and Shantell Martin.After Brooklyn,the collection will head to Toledo,Ohio;and Louisville,Kentucky.
Sneakers are one of the few things people will line up for days to buy.They're the subject of songs,and have helped make billionaires out of athletes and fashion designers.Sneakers are a cultural phenomenon,and perhaps an alien(外星人)visiting our planet could learn most about us,by looking at our feet!
