SNEAKERS 4 SUCCESS – FUNDRAISER 6.28.12

During my trip to NY I had an opportunity to do some live art at the 1st annual fundraiser for the Sneakers 4 Success¬†organization. It took place at the Open Road Rooftop in the Lower East Side. This is one of the most beautiful rooftops in New York City because it filled with colorful graffiti by New York’s most notable artists. Check out the live art photos taken by my cousin Richie, and some of my favorite shots borrowed by other photographers of the event.


S4S uses sneaker culture, urban lifestyle, and footwear design as a platform so students can discover their intuitive creative powers in solving problems. The use of sneakers keeps the students engaged and connected to the material as well as exposing them to ways they can transform their passion into anything. Overall, S4S will give every student that SOLE POWERTM needed to achieve anything.

My boys. Kips, and Clef. Toofly team 2012. Thanks fellas;)
