Sneakerheads have just been put on notice. Soul crooner Craig David might have crushed the custom sneaker game down with his new Louis Vuitton adidas NMDs.

Featuring Louis Vuitton detailing throughout, the R&B singer treated himself to two pairs. The all white model bares the iconic brown monogramming on the prime knit upper forming the three signature adidas brand stripes. Additionally, touches of LV are featured on the heel cup and heel tab.

MULTIHOP.TV HIGHLIGHTS Snoop Dogg Named Director of Football Recruiting for Adidas

Adidas is marketing to the cool kids. I’ve got to give it up to the team behind naming Snoop Dogg (a.k.a Calvin Broadus) Director of Football Recruiting. It’s a clever idea.

Everyone on the sports circuit knows that Snoop has served as a sports mentor who has lead his very own youth league for year.

Snoop has proven he can coach and has a vast knowledge of the sport. While this new corporate appointment may not be the most expected hire, it actually is sort of a no-brainer when you really think about it.  Snoop Dogg as Director of Football Recruiting fits right in line with the Adidas marketing philosophy.  Snoop has certainly got that football drive and his team mentality could pay off big for the brand.  It’s always nice when a passion pays off.

 

MULTIHOP.TV HIGHLIGHTS Brooklyn Museum’s “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” EXHIBIT

rise-in-sneaker-culture-summary

The exhibit features lots of sneakers — about 150 pairs from the mid-19th century to 2015 — and the show’s introductory text panel asks some good questions: “How have some sneakers come to be valued more highly than others? How have sneakers expressed both privilege and inclusion? How were specialized sports shoes transformed into staples of street fashion and, in turn, icons of masculinity? How is it that at a single glance, a pair of sneakers can reveal nuanced social information?”

The show was organized by the American Federation of Arts, a packager of traveling exhibitions, in partnership with the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, and its senior curator, Elizabeth Semmelhack. With footwear displayed in sleek vitrines, the installation looks as if it were sponsored by a major sneaker company. Nike certainly should be pleased: One of the six sections tracks the evolution of its immensely popular Air Jordan line of basketball shoes: 23 models in all, from 1984 to 2008. Adidas, Reebok, Saucony, Converse and Puma are among the other companies whose styles are well represented. A section called “Fresh” presents high-end, limited editions conceived by designers like Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo and Prada, as well as by celebrities like Kanye West.

“The Rise of Sneaker Culture” continues through Oct. 4 at the Brooklyn Museum; 718-638-5000, brooklynmuseum.org.
