Nike and Reebok and Adidas, oh my! The 2013 summer edition of the H-Town Sneaker Summit returns to Reliant Center for an event that Complex magazine calls one of the ''50 moments that changed sneaker culture forever.'' Attracting avid sneakerheads from all over the country, this twice-yearly showcase of footwear, urban fashion and hip-hop music is the largest convention of its kind in the world. Popular lifestyle brands such as Crooks & Castles, Diamond Supply and Two in the Shirt bring in the best selling and most exclusive items in their arsenals to satisfy the crowd's hunger for the next must-have fashion item.
Entertainment is provided by an all-star lineup of the best DJs in the city, including collectives such as The Kracker Nuttz and Booth Pimps. Rap legends Bun B and Slim Thug are known to frequent the event, and an impromptu concert is always a strong possibility. Individual collectors bring boxes upon boxes of limited-edition and classic Jordans, Nike Airs, Foamposites, and more to sell or trade.
3 to 8 p.m. One Reliant Park. For information, call 832-745-3000 or visit www.htownsneakersummit.com. $20.
