A Class for Kicks
Got this from Knayes Blog, I wish they had this Lehman or BCC :
Pensylvania's Carnegie Mellon University has introduced its official sneaker based class, Sneakerology 101. Click HERE for more info...
A university level course dealing with sneaker culture on the whole. Ranging from its roots in the 1970s to its shaping by hip-hop, the internet and basketball among other factors, the course covers the overall impact of sneakers on a worldwide level. The class utilizes Bobbito Garcia's Where'd You Get Those? for reference as well as various sneaker-based websites. Evaluations include a mid-term project pertaining to the design of a sneaker, incorporating elements acquired along the way. Interested parties can sign up for the class' next session set for Spring of 2009
