This is pretty dope… a lot of history (and notable interviews) in a short clip.

DC’s Shoe, a documentary short by Jacob Garibay, is a visual history of New Balance in Washington, DC. Understanding the culture that caused a running shoe to make the organic transition into a true lifestyle silhouette for DC in the early 80s. Interviews with DC natives give deeper perspective and direct insight into the stories that follow. This isn’t about who started the trend – draw your own conclusion. More than any sneaker or brand this project represents culture and storytelling for the most vibrant city in America. New Balance serves as the vehicle for this particular story. Tried and true; Washington DC’s culture remains unparalleled.
