DON'T MISS OUT Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street

Skate X Sneakers

The Design Museum and StockX have teamed up once again as part of the Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street exhibition to bring to life a comprehensive timeline of skate shoe design.

What to expect

Curated by cultural storyteller Samutaro and featuring photography from Atiba Jefferson and Marcel Veldman, this digital timeline explores the influence the skate scene has had on 21st Century sneaker culture and tracks the key moments of skate’s journey from the ramps to the runway.

Discover how Eric Kosten’s and Kareem Campbell’s signature shoes took design cues from Jordan and Reebok in the 1990s, before exploring how skate brands such as Osiris, DVS and DC have inspired modern-day designs from A$AP Rocky, Prada, Louis Vuitton and more.
