GOAT, an online marketplace for buying and selling footwear, have announced the launch of their new pop-up sneaker gallery, The Greatest. The exhibition will serve as a celebration to the many artists, shoes and boutiques that have influenced pop culture and paved the way for sneaker enthusiasts everywhere.
The revolving exhibition will change monthly with a different regional theme starting with Los Angeles. For the remaining weeks of October, The Greatest will pay homage to LA’s profound impact on global sneaker culture from the year 2000 to present day. Celebrate the famous and extremely pricey Undefeated x Air Jordan 4 Retro collaboration from 2005, to the more recent Fear of God x Vans Vault release.
The story of the city’s influence will be told through 25 pairs of historically-significant shoes born out of LA including: Air Jordan 3/8 Retro Pack “Kobe Bryant,” Dunk Low Pro SB “Diamond,” Air Force 1 “Mr. Cartoon,” Yeezy PowerPhase “Calabasas,” Air Huarache Le “Stussy,” and Air Max 97 360 x Union.
Many special guests will be in attendance doing Q&A’s and workshops including legendary streetwear figures Jeff Staple, Jason Markk, “The Shoe Surgeon,” Andrea Lieberman, Sophia Chang, and more.
The exhibit is debuting on Oct. 7 through Dec. 31 at Platform in Culver City, California. For more information visit the GOAT site here.
