BACKYARD TO THE FUTURE

Every year for the last few years, The Melbourne Arts Centre has hosted and event called ‘OUR BACKYARD’. In a nutshell, its an event that promotes the (local) hip-hop scene in a positive way to the kids during the school holidays. Sneaker Freaker has supported this event for the last couple of years with organising a mini sneaker display cum swap meet kinda thing – cos you know….everyone who’s into hip-hop digs sneakers.

Anyways, the event as usual attracted a million screaming kids being excited about everything from free stickers to having a go on the microphone. Pretty standard sorta stuff with kids of any genre and subculture.

The day breezed by without incident until we were packing up and one of our boys spotted this. We stopped him dead in his tracks and interrogated him on what, where and how. It seems some kid in Adelaide customs builds these iconic shoes, and sells them for a pretty decent price. What was icing on the cake was that our victim here went on and did even more tweaks – adding the light up NIKE logo on the strap to name a few. It has a small battery powering LED’s that light up blue. He wouldn’t go into more detail about it and stopped me from taking any more pics.

You can decide for yourself if they do justice to the real things from the movie. It certainly got our attention.
