The Girls Got Kicks book tour heated up the Twin Cities this Saturday evening at Rhymesayers' Fifth Element record store. The release party was presented by author Lori Lobenstine, with a B-Girl Be showcase featuring hometown talents Desdamona, Tish Jones, Maria Isa, Lil C (winner of the sneaker battle), Denise Lewis and jams by DJ Shannon Blowtorch. A photobooth for the book was held at B-Girl Be 2009, so the book features a good representation of Twin Cities ladies bringing the heat to female sneaker fiends across the globe. Check out snapshots of the sneaker battle contestants and friends who attended. PHOTOS BY B FRESH PHOTOGRAPHY on November 5, 2011.
