To call Sneaker Politics a shoe store would be completely missing the point. Sneaker Politics, commonly referred to as simply “Politics” is a major player in streetwear culture. What started as a shoe store in Lafayette, LA in 2006 has since grown into an internationally recognized lifestyle brand with locations in Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans. Politics is routinely featured in major streetwear and fashion publications and has collaborated on sneaker and clothing releases with some of the biggest fashion brands in the world.
Recently, Politics was selected to take part in an exclusive Rocawear clothing release. Streetwear and fashion fans packed Politics’ Lafayette location in anticipation of the release. We were there to capture the action.
