Rotofugi is proud to be a sponsor of Sneaker Pimps Chicago (August 5-6) at Open End Gallery (2000 W. Fulton).....

Keep your eye out for new pieces by Chicago artists Ken Keirns, Shawn Smith, Revise CMW, Joey Potts and James Liu ... they'll be adding pieces to the awesome, huge collection of artist-customized shoes that is Sneaker Pimps.

And, best of all, live painting by Gary Baseman, Ethos and Goodfoot at the opening! :D

Plus we'll have a modest exhibit of our Rotofugi Exclusive toys at the show. :)

Groovy... I'm not a big Sneaks fan, but that'd be interesting to check out seeing how I'll be in town anyway. Where abouts is 200 W. fulton? That's downton in Eas Village isn't it?

2000 W. Fulton is here. That's 11 blocks almost exactly due south of the store.

I'm not sure what the name of that area is exactly...Way West Loop? Warehouse-ville? I dunno....

Well, if you want to be technical about it (and we know how picky you can be Zook :)) Open End is just south of East Village.


Open End is 10 blocks south of Chicago on Damen. Only .6 miles. So not such a bad walk.

looks like you guys are in for a treat! i'm lookin' forward to a UK show (someone correct me if that's already happened...) Would love to see J Burgerman's custom royal elastics in person! Loved them so much that I actually bought myself a pair a few days ago :D

I've decided to try my hand at customising a friends trainers for her this weekend, so I'll make sure to post some photos them when I'm done :D
