Discover the footwear phenomenon that has challenged performance design, inspired new subcultures and shaken the world of fashion.

Cult classics, limited edition silhouettes and rare colourways are put under the spotlight. Go behind the scenes and explore the design processes for the most innovative kicks from self-lacing to 3D printed, 100% recyclable or cushioned with air bubbles.

Sneaker design has sparked a dedicated group of 'sneakerheads' all over the world, produced a reselling market worth $2 billion and revolutionised our relationship with sportswear.

Uncover style icons and brand collaborations that have shaped the sneaker scene including models by Nike, Adidas, Puma, Colette and Comme de Garçons as well as new releases such as the MSCHF Studio's 'Jesus Shoes'.
