'Girls Got Kicks' Book Launch


East Harlem sneaker boutique Goliath played host to the official launch of 'Girls Got Kicks.' The first stop of a multi-city tour that currently has release parties scheduled in Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, Toronto and even Johannesburg, among others! The book is an in depth look at female sneaker culture around the world. Covering everything from Tomboys and Girly Girls to Mothers and the "four letter word" ... pink. It truly is a fantastic work, in words and pictures, and author Lori Lobenstine absolutely nailed it.

Ladies featured in the book signed their respective pages and took pictures as guests mingled. I was very excited to see these every day heroines be superstars. As they are largely underrepresented in this sub culture and under-served by shoe companies, they took it upon themselves to show the world in a BIG way that they love this culture/hobby just as much as the next ... guy.

Check out a couple of photos from the event and hop over to the Girls Got Kicks website to learn more about the book and to purchase your copy. Definitely be on the lookout for GGK in your city!
