Speed Museum

If you’re a sneaker enthusiast you’ll have to make sure to visit The Speed Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. The museum is hosting an exhibit called “Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture” that celebrates the footwear staple’s “complex and fascinating” design history. Visitors will be able to explore the sneaker’s history through the 150 featured sneakers including an 1860s spiked running shoe, an original 1917 Converse All Star, a pair of 1963 track shoes, and the original Nike Air Force 1. The exhibit runs through Nov. 27.

I grew up in the shadow of the Appalachians in western Maryland. I received my B.A. in English literature from Washington College and moved to Los Angeles, where I’ve fallen in love with the gorgeous weather and abundance of food trucks.
