Brooklyn, we have a problem.
Sneakers & Hip-Hop have always gone hand in hand- from the Adidas shell-toe era made popular by Run DMC to people “stompin’ in their Air Force Ones” down in St. Louis, kicks have been a key part in our culture forever. In the past decade or so the sneaker community has grown tremendously, thanks to sneaker events held all around the world & products, stores & websites dedicated to keeping your feet looking clean- literally (you may be familiar with a guy named Jason Markk). And this Fall, you’ll get a chance to see the sneakerhead community live & in full effect at one of the biggest sneaker events to hit the East Coast. Yes, yes y’all, The SOURCE 360 Sneaker Summit is coming at you live from Brooklyn!
On September 21st from 12-7 p.m., The SOURCE is teaming up with Houston’s Sneaker Summit (you know, just the BIGGEST sneaker convention in the country) to bring you our first ever sneaker event! Get ready to buy, sell & trade some of your rarest kicks & cash out on the latest ones! Taking place at the LIU Athletic Center in Brooklyn, NY, expect to see thousands of kicks along with some very special guests & a large assortment of your favorite clothing brands! Sure you’ve been to sneaker conventions in the past, but trust & believe, this is the one you will definitely not want to miss. For more info & ticket packages, head over to the Eventbrite page & prepare yourself for the best weekend you’ll ever have in NYC!

Kairi knows the name of every pair of Jordans but couldn’t tell you a thing she learned in Math while in college- who uses exponents, anyway? Talk kicks with her @_findingforever.
