After a monumental start to 2019 with Mayor Sylvester Turner proclaiming January 10th Sneaker Summit Day, and celebrating All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, the 16th annual summertime Sneaker Summit returned to Houston's NRG Center. This season, participants and attendees were encouraged to trade their soles in the Monster Energy Trader’s Lounge and show their moves in the Fresh Empire Dance Contest. Techies were able to visit the Microsoft booth for a glance at their latest hardware, while guests got fresh and pampered at the first ever SneakHer Summit booth. Last but not least VIPs relaxed and recharged in the Sweat + Soul Restore Lounge. Aside from hosting a variety of displays exhibiting the latest fashions, and rare hard to find sneaker collections, the Sneaker Summit is also known worldwide for its exclusive brand collaborations and activations.
