DunkXChange Returns for a 2012 Edition in Fort Lauderdale on February 25
If you're not already initiated into sneakerhead culture, don't get too worked up about it. Yes, the sneakers fetch exorbitant prices. No, they aren't always worn. And all that talk about uppers! Soles! Colorways! (This is something characteristic of collectors' vinyl toys too -- why aren't they just plain-old "colors" or "color combinations" instead of "colorways"?) Whatever. Everyone has his or her fetishistic little collections on some level, right?
And hey, at least sneakerhead gatherings are more fun than most collector's conventions. With various music-interested subcultural types interested in expensively adorning their feet (or not), performances and cameo appearances at the most popular of this recurring series, DunkXChange, are usually a given.
DXC has announced a return to Fort Lauderdale at the end of this month, on Saturday, February 25. Like past editions, it promises a convention-style setup with various vendors hawking their wares from tables as well as, likely, a street art and maybe a limited-edition sneaker exhibition. Unfortunately, most details are still "coming soon," except for the venue -- that's Off the Hookah.
What that means is that vendor tables are still ripe for the grabbing, and maybe these guys need entertainment too. Now's the time to make your pitch by heading over to dunkxchange.com and following the contact information there.
