The same could be said of Crompton Place, which played host to the first ‘SOLEcial Studies Back-to-School Buy, Sell & Trade Sneaker Event’.
First and foremost, we have to say “Thank you” to Mr. & Mrs. Lorusso who allowed us to have the event in the beautiful Crompton Place.
I tip my hat to the Lorusso’s as they are MAJOR supporters of Worcester, the Canal District and especially kids that are trying to be ‘change agents’ in the City and supporters of Future Focus Media Co-op.
The SOLEcial Studies event was filled with lots of laughs, new connections and friendships that were made because of ‘wearable art’ in the form of sneakers that brought folks together from Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
“Sneaker culture is so diverse,” Wells said. “It encompasses everyone. You have the old, the young. You have the tall, the short. I’d say it’s one of the most diverse that exists because you have everyone.”
