The Sneaker Politics x Reebok NPC UK NCL “Storyville” pays tribute to the oldest profession. No, not sneaker blogging, but rather prostitution and its once regulated run in The Big Easy.
Offering homage to “Storyville,” Politics provides a nice history lesson:
“Storyville was established by municipal ordinance under the New Orleans City Council, to regulate prostitution and drugs. Alderman Sidney Story, a City Councilman, wrote guidelines and legislation to control prostitution within the city. The ordinance designated a sixteen block area as the part of the city in which prostitution, although still nominally illegal, was tolerated or regulated. The area was originally referred to as “The District”, but its nickname, “Storyville”, soon caught on.”
Robust in red quilted leather with gum soles, the Sneaker Politics x Reebok NPC UK NCL “Storyville” is available now in-store with an online launch at Sneaker Politics taking place tomorrow.
