Sneakerheads will get a kick out of the Brooklyn Museum’s latest exhibition which chronicles the history and impact of a piece of footwear that is largely responsible for the commercialization of athletics; a shoe that has transcended both race and status to create a culture all its own; the sneaker. Host Annamaria Stewart sat down with Lisa Small, curator of “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” exhibition, to talk about curating the exhibit, how the Jordan Brand reached icon status, the transition from sportswear to fashion, and the preservation of collectible sneakers.
