Lyst presents an exhibition created in search and celebration of the 25 greatest sneakers of all time, as voted for by an international poll of the general public & industry experts.

About

Curated by leading international sneaker expert, Neal Heard, the exhibition is both a history and an homage - revealing the secret stories behind the creation of the most iconic sneakers ever made.

Featuring a 3,000-year timeline, G.O.A.T Sneakers identifies the earliest known iterations of the shoe before chronicling its evolution across the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries – along the way charting the many infamous controversies & scandals (such as the debate around who first invented vulcanised rubber; the origin of the term ‘sneaker’; the trainer-versus-sneaker question) as well as the extraordinary stories surrounding the creation of the most iconic brands and designs over the years and how they were variously appropriated by successive generations of cultural tribes around the world.

Exploring the obsessive devotion inspired by sneakers, the exhibition will also offer a look ‘Inside The Mind of a Sneakerhead’ in the form of a hidden installation featuring the highlights of the renowned collections of two sneaker obsessives, Brooksy and Kish Kash.
