The Bata Shoe Museum is excited to announce that our exhibition Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture has been expanded into a travelling exhibition!  Developed in partnership with the American Federation of Arts, the exhibition will be travelling to four US venues, beginning with the Brooklyn Museum, opening as The Rise of Sneaker Culture on July 10th, 2015.  It is also being developed into a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by the AFA in partnership with the Bata Shoe Museum and Rizzoli.
