Go BIG or go home.
That was probably what was in the minds of the Dead Stock crew as they planned this year’s Kixpo event. To commemorate the 5th anniversary of the annual event they decided to go big, literally, as Kixpo is going to be held in the largest domed stadium in the world, Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Able to hold over 110,000 people, you can be sure this has potential to be one of the largest sneaker gatherings ever.
Not only will you be able to buy, sell or trade sneakers, but you will be able to check out rare and custom sneaker collections. Along with plenty of footwear a number of streetwear brands will be on hand for you to check out as well. Assisting with the event will be some familiar names to #sneakerholics. Mayor (@_Mayor_) from the ATF crew will be on hand to help with hosting duties and DJ Greg Street (@djgregstreet) will be spinning tunes. A number of other performers will be on hand also, such as Stalley (@stalley) and DJ Love, as well a large number of sneaker enthusiasts, like Franalations (@franalations23) and Phase2x (@Phase2x).
If that wasn’t enough, included with your price of admission is the option to take a private tour of the stadium facilities. From checking out the player’s and cheerleader’s locker rooms, to the post game press room, you’ll have a behind the scenes look at the stadium. Running tomorrow, July 2nd from 4-10PM, if you are in Texas and love sneakers, Kixpo 2011 is not to be missed.
Guess the saying “Everything is bigger in Texas” is true!
