Know your Air Jordans from your Air Force 1s? ‘Sneakers Unboxed:Studio to Street’ exploring sneaker performance, subculture andfashion is finally dropping next spring at the Design Museum, London.
Cult classics, limited edition silhouettes and rare colourways will go under the spotlight as the Design Museum steps into the world of sneakers for the first time.
Sneaker design has revolutionised retail styles, taken hold of a subculture and sparked a phenomenal audience of ‘sneakerheads’ from all over the world.
Divided into three parts – Performance, Street Culture and Fashion – the exhibition invites you behind the scenes and reveals the design process behind the most innovative kicks, be that self-lacing, 3D printed, made from 100% recyclables or cushioned with air bubbles.
Uncover style icons and brand collaborations that have shaped the sneaker scene including models by Nike, Adidas, Puma, Colette and Comme des Garçons as well as new releases such as the MSCHF Studio’s ‘Jesus Shoes’.
