You know our Mayor is an embarrassment when he is making news in a Taiwanese animated news show.

I shoot the gift.
I went to an event, Out The Box: Rise Of The Sneaker Culture, at the Bata Shoe Museum put on by TDotLovesKicks.com tonight.
Lately the sneaker fiend in me has been creeping out. I blame the day job, but I can’t front, a fresh pair feel nice on the feet.
In a corporate launch event focused on the history of the sneaker, Out The Box: Rise Of The Sneaker Culture looked at its inception of volcanic rubber Converse in late 1800’s to the present era of Kanye collabs with Louie Vitton.
Hip Hop was well represented with kicks on display that referenced Jam Master Jay (R.I.P), Schooly D, and De La Soul. I rolled with a friend who sometimes needs a break from life, and an open bar, DJ Tabs spinning, and some very beautiful ladies, was a much needed break for myself as well.
Tomorrow (Friday, April 25) will be off the hook with NYC legend, Bobbito Garcia on the decks, and an envy of fresh kicks representing for the public opening. The display will remain for the next year (to April 2014) and is worth the conversations alone that will spawn out of viewing this gallery of sneakers.
Half trying out the new gallery feature in the mobile app and half sharing some photos I’ve taken at work recently. Men’s and women’s 996’s. I might have to cop a pair myself.
