We will be talking about topics such as sneakers, and THE one topic females in the this culture should be 100% aware of is breast cancer awareness. Charisse holds Chicks N Kicks every year in October so that she can spread the word and her story. This year she will have @Spifster on site to do complimentary manicures so please make sure all you ladies in Chicago come out tomorrow night! Xoxo

Boston gets a Sneak Peek into the Sneaker Museum

Unbeknownst to many of us, Boston has been home to one of sneaker culture's biggest Jordan collectors. You won't find him on ebay (or even online), but if you're a local vendor, you probably know the guy. “Putting this collection together over the last 26 years has been a labor of love. It’s been a joy to see sneaker culture grow and evolve over the years,” said Sneaker Museum founder Rick Kosow. “Our team is building the Museum so that we can give back to that community and share our mutual love for this wonderful tradition of history and design.”

Sneak Peek X.X.XII. will feature curated exhibitions from the Sneaker Museum’s vast collection,   highlighting a breadth of artifacts from the first decade of the Air Jordan brand, including sneakers, fashion and other related collectibles, along with original artistic works riffing on Jordan’s legacy and influence on culture.

The event will also specifically showcase Year I Air Jordan kicks, “Space Jam”/Warner Bros. collectibles, and rare 1992 Olympics Dream Team merchandise, along with a fashion show featuring vintage Jordan apparel with multimedia work by videographer Dillon Buss, photography by Zacharie Lanoue, sculpture by Pat Peltier and graffiti by Ricardo Gomez.

The Museum will also host a raffle for a vintage 1990 Jordan poster to raise money for Sneakers 4 Success, a nonprofit organization that uses sneaker culture, urban lifestyle, and design to empower and motivate underrepresented youth toward academic success.  All raffle entrees will receive a VIP invitation to the Sneaker Museum’s official launch party, and anyone wearing their J’s will get a free raffle ticket.

RSVP here.
