Sneaker Culture In Major League Baseball

Sneaker culture is getting more mainstream, it’s something we have introduced you to before. Popular shoes can influence how we dress. This weekend, you might’ve noticed even Netflix dropped a new show called Sneakerheads. It shows one man going to extreme lengths to get a pair of kicks. When you think of sneaker culture, you might NOT think about baseball. A local professor says think again. Dr. Jemayne King is an assistant professor at Johnson C. Smith University. He’s featured in a new book called “The New York Mets in Popular Culture”. He joined us on QC@3 to talk about this new book. He also talks about how the Mets have influenced Hip Hop Culture.
