Who doesn’t like a nice pair of shoes?
The feel, the smell, and the look of how you first put them on. They can be the perfect tool for the perfect moment. High heels for a beautiful model. Construction boots for the construction workers daily grind. Basketball shoes to display the athletes arsenal of talent.

From high heels to Jordans to army boots, Sneaker Suites dives deep into the diverse and personal relationship street dancers have with the most highly-purchased fashion items in the world: sneakers. Fusing provocative poetry, hip hop choreography, childhood memories, and instrumental beats, Sneaker Suites unravels the iconic importance of sneakers through this multi-layered performance.

Sneakers represent empowerment and exploitation, and Sneaker Suites grapples with the contradictions of this symbolism with funk and style.

From Seattle to Wyoming, New York to Philadelphia, Antics has successfully sold out shows and captivated the audience. Sneaker Suites will be making its Los Angeles premiere July 8th and 9th at the Ivy Substation.
