STR.CRD 2012

The annual leading urban youth culture calendar event in the areas of fashion, music, sneakers, graffiti, skate and dance in Africa back at Maboneng Precinct. So I took to the streets to see what goes down when sneakers, BMX, fashion and dance come together. It went something like this:

I don’t think I am a “sneaker-head” but my heart sings when I see these!!!

A serious dance competition also went down – these guys were one of the groups competing for the R 20 000 prize money!

Serious sneaker-heads must have been in sneaker-heaven – wherever I looked sneakers, sneakers, sneakers…. not really my cup of tea but for those red jobs maybe…

The guys from Gooder have created their own collection of miniature sneakers… how cool is that?

The grey Nike-sneaker-boot-shoe is a Nike Mag, inspired by the shoes the professor wore in “Back to the Future”. It’s a serious collectors item and easily goes for R 40,000… WHAT???

The mini-sneakers are hand-moulded and hand-painted… that’s serious art that!

And then the sun started to set and I felt very sneakered-out… what a day it was though! I had no idea all this stuff was out there… Thanks to the guys at Gooder my day was a very cool learning curve – I feel totally BUCK now!!!
