OSDlive.com Presents “Obsessive Sneaker Disorder” which airs every Wednesday night at 10 pm ET at www.osdlive.com. What used to be a rarely written about or documented phenomenon, the sneaker subculture has been in existence for more than 3 decades, but gained popularity in the late ‘80s due to athletes such as Michael Jordan, Andre Agassi, Ivan Lendl, Michael Chang and Bo Jackson, to name a few. The OSD-Obsessive Sneaker Disorder talk show shines the spotlight on the culture with interviews with designers such as Tinker Hatfield (Nike), Paul Litchfield (Reebok) and D’Wayne Edwards (PENSOLE) and celebrities such as DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito Garcia and Chi McBride (Actor). While the term 'sneakerhead' has become more commonplace due to televisions shows such as ESPN's "It's The Shoes" or magazines such as Sole Collector and Sneaker Freaker, sneakerheads have always existed because if you look good then you feel good and nothing says that better than a pair of fresh sneakers! Sneakers are art for your feet, after all. Please visit www.osdlive.com for more information or email Dee at dee@osdlive.com.
