On April 25th, the Bata Shoe Museum opened their latest exhibition, Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture. Out of the Box is the first North American exhibition to showcase the history of sneaker culture and features over 120 sneakers representing the past 150 years. Recognizable sneakers from rap legends Run DMC, sneaker guru Bobbito Garcia aka Kool Bob Love and Dee Wells from OSD are also featured gems. A particular highlight is the handpicked sneakers and sketches by Nike designers Tinker Hatfield, Tobie Hatfield, Mark Smith and Eric Avar. 

The exhibition is open now until March 30, 2014.
