ChicagoShovels Web Site Gives Lowdown on Snow

Get the lowdown on the German sneaker scene

Somewhere between 1980s hip hop culture and 1990s skateboarding culture, the sneaker scene emerged as a subculture in its own right.

Germany might have gotten into the game a little late, but over the past couple of years German sneaker-lovers and their European neighbours have formed a vibrant community to rival what’s coming out of the US. Pulse recently kicked back with a few big names in the local scene in Cologne.

"Lowdown" is a song written by Peter Cetera and Danny Seraphine for the rock band Chicago and recorded for their third album Chicago III (1971). It was the second single released from this album, and peaked at #35 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

It found that sales were November were down 0.4% from a year earlier, following a 0.1% dip in October.
And more timely figures from Experian, which track "footfalls" or the number of people out on the High Street, suggest that the number of shoppers has dropped by 11.5% in the first three days of this week compared to the same period last year.
