Description

Sneakers Unboxed tells the story of one of the most universal design objects, bought and worn by millions of people worldwide every day. Charting the design and cultural journey of sneakers, shoes originally designed for specific athletic activities, this exhibition explores how they have been adopted as a style element by youth cultures. The show then looks at how this adoption has made sneakers pivotal in shaping the current global industry, one that is today equally driven by design innovation and consumer demand. 


Featuring iconic models and designs from as early as the 1920s, the exhibition explores and demonstrates how sneaker design is a synthesis of cutting edge-technology, innovative materials, and global style-consciousness. Visitors are taken on a journey into the design process behind the most technically inventive sneakers, offering a new-found appreciation for these ubiquitous design objects. 


The exhibition offers an informative and empowering experience, putting people, designers, and wearers at the heart of the story. It encourages visitors to think about the future of sneaker design and sustainability in the industry. 


Aside from a multitude of rare sneakers, the exhibition features a wealth of images, film, and process material.
