“Mr. Sneakers” Installation Opens at Ron Herman

Here is some special news. The founder of many denim brands such as Citizens of Humanity, AG Adriano Goldschmied and Goldsign, just to name a few, has given Ron Herman a sweet 35th Anniversary gift. Ron Herman worked with local artist Jarrod James to set up a display of more than 100 pairs of sneakers, a pair of Citizens of Humanity mens jeans covered in resin and a birthday candle. How sweet is that? Here is some more background about their relationship below:

About 35 years ago Ron Herman walked into AG Adriano Goldschmied’s booth in Paris and a friendship was made. What Herman didn’t know until recently was that in Italy his blue trousers, white crisp button down and sneakers were an oddity and Goldschmied’s team began to call the store owner, Mr. Sneakers. Hence the name of the display “Mr. Sneaker.” They would refer to Ron Herman internally for orders, phone calls, payments; asking each other “Has Mr. Sneakers order been shipped”.

The display will be up until the end of May at their Melrose boutique with a video running beside it. So hurry and see the display yourself.
