Cool sneakers at the Bata Shoe Museum

Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition in North America to trace the sneaker’s journey from athletic gear to status symbol. It’s also a chance to ogle really cool kicks designed by everyone from Damien Hirst to Christian Louboutin and worn by the likes of Michael Jordan and Terry Fox. Below, our favourites from the 120 pairs on display.

On until March 30, 2014. Bata Shoe Museum, 327 Bloor St. W., 416.979.7799, batashoemuseum.ca
