I attended Tighly Laced Kicks 10.10.10, which was a sneaker exhibit of rare, and limited edition sneakers.
Alex Saavedra spear-headed this event, asking sneaker enthusiasts in the Greater Boston Area to submit their rarest, most eccentric sneaks. There was also some graffiti art on display, and some local talent performed that night.
As you can see, a man can be just as serious about his sneaker game, as a woman can be about her shoes! I never imagined sneakers could be so polished and sophisticated, viewing them as casual, and laid back, but these sneakers are so elaborate in design they are far from that!
Some of these sneakers are discontinued, special edition, or came in limited colors and sizes. Exclusivity is the name of the game; the rarer the sneaker is, the more valuable it can be! High demand could drive these sneaker prices through the roof! These sneakers came in amazing, vibrant colors, and were in mint condition. Who knew sneakers could be seen as pieces of art?
It was amazing how artwork was incorporated into this sneaker exhibit! Sneakers, artwork, and performances worked together harmoniously to pay homage to the world of Hip Hop locally, and abroad.
