There was some short story on NPR the other day about the history of sneakers, their place in the hierarchy of fashion and what they represent both historically and today. I have no idea of the name, but it was really interesting… just wondering if anyone else happened to catch it?
Don't know how I missed something like that. Then again, I listen to NPR mostly in the car and at work. Do you remember the time of day you heard it? Right off bat, I'd guess it aired either on Marketplace or All Things Considered, but first...let's do the numbers.
