Germany's Sneaker Museum
Who's coming to Germany with me? No, I'm not going for the beer, girls or to get a new pair of Adidas, I'm going to check out the Sneaker Museum. Sure we here in the U.S. have a large sneaker culture, Japan's is even larger than ours, but no one has anything on the sneaker culture that has been taking place in Europe. The newest event to take place because of the sneaker culture in Europe is the opening of the Sneaker Museum in Cologne, Germany. The Museum consists of a gallery fully devoted to sneakers, with the inaugural exhibit being, "The Dunk: Celebrating Colors and Creativity". Hundreds of people crowded the streets to view the opening exhibit which was hosting by Nike Skateboarding and will be on going until next month.
