We know what you’re thinking and yes, this place is as amazing as it looks. However, these photos are just a small preview of what kind of sneakers are housed in this undisclosed location in Chicago. Chicago may not be looked at as the most prominent sneaker city in the world, but hey, there’s a lot more to it than you may know. Places like these are scarce and the fact that there are more lost archives in the sneaker world like these, makes us want to pack our bags and go for a road trip. It’s like walking into a time machine, going back to a time where I still wasn’t even born. Out of respect the buildings in which these archives are located have to remain unnamed, but we hope that these photos do you some justice. This is Part 1 of Chicago’s Lost Archives, so make sure you stay tuned till next week for the sequel.
