Ten years ago, Kadoma changed the game with the first Sneaker Summit in Houston. Having grown to a bi-annual event that books big venues and even invaded All-Star Weekend, another door is broken down with this March’s Milwaukee Sneaker Summit. Taking place on March 29th, the playing home of the Bucks will host sneakerheads right before LeBron James and Dwyane Wade take the floor for a road run. Get the details in the flyer above and block below. Click here to buy tickets.
This Saturday, it’s going down in Philly. The “FRSHR THAN YOUR AVRGE” Sneaker Event at Temple University will see exclusive kicks, raffles, giveaways, and the main event, the FYTA Sneaker Battle. Peep the block info and flyer below for official location, time and date details. Pick up tickets to the event here.
The holiday festivities continue with the Nice Kicks Golden Ticket Giveaway. This Saturday, Nice Kicks will issue golden tickets to two lucky sneakerheads. What do golden tickets grant access to and how can you win? Glad you asked. The winner of a golden ticket will be granted the right to reserve one pair of shoes for purchase in 2014 from the Nice Kicks Shop, no matter the release. The ticket can only be used once and the reservation must be made seven days before release date. No new releases are restricted, so make it count. Sneakerheads wishing to make the golden ticket their own can purchase a Nice Kicks lanyard in-store or online for a chance to win. Lanyards cost $4 and all proceeds will benefit the Austin Children’s Shelter. Attendees of the Nice Kicks Charity Holiday Party will also be entered to win a golden ticket. One golden ticket will be awarded to the winner of the online/in-store giveaway and one golden ticket will be awarded to the winner of the party giveaway. Good luck!

As the sneaker community grows, so do the events. Summits and such have become the premier place for shoe lovers to congregate, providing an in-person platform to buy, sell, trade and talk kicks.

On August 17th, footwear fans in Massachusetts can come together for a sneaker event that donates all the proceeds to the Stone Soup community resource center. Admission to the event cost $5, with vendor tables running $20. Again, all proceeds will go towards rebuilding the Stone Soup center and tickets can be purchased here.
