Last night, sneaker enthusiasts from across the Chicagoland gathered at Foot Looker on State Street to celebrate 35 years of Air Max in the most Chicago way possible.
The event curated by Foot Locker Chicago’s marketing manger Mike Charles quickly filled with invitees to take part in the destinies before Mike sat down with two of Chicago’s most notable sneaker influencers Oluwaseyi “Sam” Adeleke, creator of “Prgssn” and Lauren “Boobie D” Dyson for a panel on sneaker culture.
Polaroid pictures, a shoelace customization station and Harold’s Chicken were only a portion of the festivities. Air Max based trivia, displays, and gifts also contributed to a night sneaker lovers won’t soon forget.
Customizable Air Max Day t-shirts and Foot Locker folding chairs may have very well been the icing on the cake for the function. As if Foot Locker Chicago didn’t do enough to create an unforgettable evening, the unlimited photo ops and on-site photography ensured that this celebration will live on long Air Max Day comes to an end.
