In their documentary film “Sneakerheadz,” co-directors David T. Friendly and Mick Partridge pose the question, “How did sneakers become prized as collectible art?” From the shores of California to the streets of Tokyo, “Sneakerheadz” examines the cultural influence of sneaker collecting around the world and delves into a subculture whose proud members don’t just want to admire art, they want to wear it.
