Throwing back to whats already been thrown out!?

IMG_5129

Some say  “tamato” and others say tomato.

Plenty say trainers and even more say sneakers…

Most say Adidas, yet others say “Adeedas”.

But whatever twang, dialect, accent or language someone speaks, we all know what is being said (well sometimes). With Nike remaining in the limelight, other sports brands make a Comeback, whilst Adidas host a “Throwback”!

Showcased at the Hoxton Gallery; in the heart of East London; the brand with 3 stripes surly showed its age; with over 600 different pairs of vintage, deadstock , re-issues and collaboration style trainers. (Most to which are owned by one man-and I thought I was a hoarder!) Whether its walk, jog or run; the exhibition was definitely a step back into history- History that I didn’t even know existed. Some of the trainers on display only dated back 10 years or so; however, many were creations from the 90s, 80s, 70s…

For all my fellow fashionistas, footwear lovers, trainer freaks, sneakerheads, avid sporty people and the curious passerbyers; if you do get a chance or happen to be in the area, go and have a look. The space is quite small, nevertheless it’s a space filled with character, colour, culture and lets not forget…cabinets!  And whats more, it was rather interesting to browse through and worth popping into.
