Sneakers for Success
Sneakers for Success is an organization that uses sneaker culture and sneaker design to inspire underrepresented youth toward academic success. S4S recognizes and enlightens the many talents of students in underrepresented communities through sneaker culture and sneaker design. The project is dedicated to the education and advancement of people of color, poor and working class communities through workshops and other educational forums. We want to create a space for sneaker culture within academia and use the elements of the culture as a means for the students to meet their full potential toward higher education. We are confident that there is a strong, beneficial connection between students and sneakers.
