Viola! Shoeture was born.

     Grant Hooks sent out an open invitation to say thanks to friends and dance crews to show off their sneaker accessories at the open photo shoot. Hooks excitedly explains, “The reason for the photo shoot was for the launching our new product line, as well as highlighting our classic styles (Gold, Silver, Gunmetal). And we wanted to say “Thanks!” to friends of Shoeture for supporting our brand and rocking ’em on their shoes everywhere they go.”

     Capturing the moments were photographers from Shinobi Studios. It was a fun filled night as everyone posed with their blinged out shoes. Dance crew Poreotics, winners of World of Dance San Mateo and the U.S. division of Hip Hop International, joined in the photo shoot as well. Posing and showing off their Shoeture.
