The impact of sneakers on popular culture will be explored as part of a new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

The exhibition is divided into six sections which starts from the shoe's beginnings in the 1830s and runs right up to the present day. A special section will be devoted to the deign and distribution of the iconic Air Jordan shoe.

Rare sneakers on display include a pair of gold spikes made to replicate those worn by Michael Johnson at the 1966 Atlanta Olympics as well as the sneaker collection of Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. 

The exhibition has been curated by the senior creator of the Bata Shoe Musem Elizabeth Semmelhack and will be running until the 4th of October.
