“The sneaker game isn’t just the same anymore”. That’s a quote that we’ve heard all too often – a certain truth that actually developed over several years rather than on one “big bang” of sorts. From the development of eBay (which sparked reselling) to the infamous mob scene at the Pigeon Dunk release in the Lower East Side, the sneaker game began creeping toward a direction of mainstream publicity, which is definitely where the sneaker game is today. Complex pinpoints fifty moments in sneaker history that shaped the game today, so check out some of the points below and hit up Complex for the entire list.

I think sneaker riots (like those for the Concords) should definitely be on the list as a marker for where sneaker culture goes wrong. It's ugly, it's stupid, and it's really pointless. Definitely changes the culture for the worse, and makes us all look bad.
