The music I will be using for my Concept will be Urban Hip Hop and Rap music. I chose this music because the Rap culture and the Sneaker culture is often combined as one.
Here are some examples of music that relates to Sneaker Culture

( I feel like this image and article supports my topic because it show how this person is representing her political party with her style of shoes. It's like you can tell her views on the subject before even speaking with her by simply looking at her shoes. I feel like this article supports my topic because its shoes how something small as shoes can be a reflection of how she feels and what she believes in. )
"SAS Goes Pink to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month." PR Newswire 30 Sept. 2016. Criminal Justice Collection. Web. 3 Oct. 2016.
( I believe this article supports and is important in my topic because its a good way to show how some people choose to support a cause by doing something that they actually love or buying something for there self but its actually hepling others. I have found my self buying a pair of Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Nike Foamposite's for the same reason. I bought them simply because the proceeds went to support Breast Cancer Awareness )
This is a small section of my collection of shoes. Sometimes having the original box that the shoes come in plays a big part in pricing if i was looking to resale my shoes. It also helps keep my collection organized.
These are the shoes that i wear often. Thats kinda why there not in the boxes so that i can have easy access to them
Most of the time when i buy shoes i also buy hats to go with them. Im sure other collector do as well. Sometimes the brand that makes the shoes also make hats to match the shoe also
This music video supports my topic because this was actually one of the first songs and music videos made in the 2000's that show's how much shoes and style plays a part in the Hip Hop Music Culture
This doc is awesome because it explains My topic and the culture of Shoe Collector's
