Seen: Sneaker Pimps LA @ Element


Despite the last-minute venue change, Sneaker Pimps LA @ Element last night offered something for almost everybody. These days it’s all about convergence.  So while  yes, there were kicks – displays of touring custom shoes + shoe vendors – Sneaker Pimps is really about gathering cool stuff together in one place.    Video games?  Yup – Street Fighter IV challenge from Capcom.  Music?  Oh yeah.  Headlined by Public Enemy and Ghostface Killa.

And we’ve saved our favorite for last – live painting from tokidoki’s Simone Legno and Pocket Full of Monsters crew members Peekaboo Monster and 2H.  We had a blast – check out the massive photo gallery after the jump – art, kicks, video games, music + more.   The synergy between all the various elements was refreshing and telling.  Perhaps a good direction for the future.
