SNEAKERS REQUIRED NEW YEARS EVE BALL 2008:

Rap sensation, critically-lauded actor Mos Def brought “SNEAKERS REQUIRED New Years Eve Ball 2008” to Terra SF in San Francisco and gave back to the community at the same time. Neo-soul songstress Goapele also made a guest performance at the event. This was the first year of an annual event of good music and giving. SNEAKERS REQUIRED guests were only granted admittance when they don their best sneakers to bring in the new year, and all were urged to bring a pair of old sneakers for charity. Women could obtain a “pump pass.”

SNEAKERS REQUIRED is a year-end celebration of the culture of Hip Hop, as sneakers were born to be utilitarian but quickly became a symbol of style and street culture that has global influence both culturally and economically.
