"Just For Kicks" examines the intersection of rap, breaking, style, and sneakers. Originally all white shoes, designed for the tennis or basketball court, sneakers have morphed from a tool for athletic performance to hip hop's cornerstone symbol of cool and an object of obsession for sneakers collectors worldwide. Stars and fans alike have closets that rival Imelda Marcos' as hip-hop dictates fashion tastes globally. Brand-name footwear fetishism may be hip-hops signature contribution to the rabid consumer culture of manufactured needs and media-fed desires, especially among people who look like they actively avoid any activity that would cause them to break into a sweat
