Welcome to the world of Kixpo, where sneakerheads rule the terrain and creativity is currency. Kixpo began as an idea in 2006 to celebrate the burgeoning sneaker and street fashion culture in not only Dallas, but all of Texas, as well. It was the first expo of its kind in Dallas. The aim of Kixpo is to create a series of events that unite the multifaceted sub-culture of sneaker collecting that cuts across all demographic boundaries. Since its first appearance in 2007, Kixpo has come to encompass music, art, and forward thinking as important aspects of its purpose. Taking place at The Bomb Factory this year KIXPO 2015 looks to be one of the best one’s yet. Be sure to check it out July 18th from 2:00pm to 7:00pm. Get your tickets here.
Kixpo is comprised of many components. First, there is the avid sneaker collector and enthusiasts, or sneakerhead. As one of the cornerstones of our event, the sneakerhead displays his collection at Kixpo not just to gain notoriety, but as a way to allow others into his personal sphere. Secondly, there are the local and regional up-start clothing brands. These “home-grown” companies present the creative capacity for which our culture has helped to flourish. Next, are the local and regional sneaker and clothing boutiques, most of which are owned by fellow sneakerheads. Then, there are the national sneaker brands themselves, these brands soon realized that Kixpo gave them the opportunity to say, “Thank you” to the consumers that drive their companies.
Organized by the grass-roots organization known as, Dead Stock, KIXPO looks to create a fun and inspiring atmosphere for sneakerheads young and old. So whether you’ve just started a collection or are a seasoned veteran of the KIXPO culture come and see the best that Dallas has to offer. It’s going to be a great time and a can’t miss event. So be sure to come out and have fun at The Bomb Factory July 18th at 2:00pm! Make sure you get your tickets soon!
