Trainers: How much can a shoe really mean?

What was your first pair? What’s your go-to pair? What’s your dream pair? From Green Flash to Stan Smiths to Kanye West’s $1.8M Yeezys, trainers are loaded cultural signifiers deemed worthy of a BBC podcast series Sneakernomics, and a major exhibition at the Design Museum. Some say trainers have even become an ‘asset class’ recently. Join us, with designers, collectors & enthusiasts, for a ThinkIn to explore why what we put on our feet says so much about who we are.

We are introducing a new booking system that will make it easier than ever for you to join our ThinkIns.
