What A Time To Be Alive
The shoe game sure has changed. It has evolved and we’ve grown with it. Gone are the days of the unmatched dominance of the Nike Air Force 1 or the pre-hipster supremacy of SB Dunk’s. The idea for our sneaker showcase has been in the making a long time. Our goal is to bring together the entire sneaker culture under one roof in a safe and welcoming space. To do that, we've decided to take our talents to New York. The beautiful thing about our culture is how everyone can be a part of it. As a popular online store, we’ve had the pleasure of serving shoes to mothers from Minnesota, kids from Korea, and dads from Denmark. Sneaker collecting has grown into a worldwide phenomenon and we’re proud to be a part of it. We have the global outreach. Now we want to bring it back home.
Created With You In Mind
The KickBackz Sneaker Show was created for sneakerheads, by sneakerheads. Every part of our event was made in mind to the very people who have made this all possible. You are the center of the culture and we thank you for it. However, our sneaker convention isn’t only for your typical sneakerhead. It was created in mind to also bring together all the people who are part of our special subculture. These many groups all helped shape and create what the shoe universe is today. Our event shows them all love.
The first major group we recognize is the rising fashion brands and clothing designers. These are fresh, local, and homegrown brands that often cannot be found anywhere else other than their own website and a handful of mom and pop shops. These independent lines set the trends the major brands copy from. These are the next Crooks and Castles, Diamond Supply, and Supreme. Our showcase would be crazy not to include these local fashion brands that have helped push forward creativity in the tri-state. After all, what would sneakers be without the dope tee or joggers to rock them with?
It's safe to say that hip-hop and shoes go way, way back. Since the 1980s, rappers and singer have used lyrics and dance as a way to express themselves and their footwear. Countless musicians have show their love for a fresh pair of sneakers. This year, we've teamed up with The Earwaxx Sessions. The Earwaxx Sessions is a premier creative expo platform in Amityville, NY on Long Island. Independent artists of all genres in any of the creative fields can express and promote themselves. They’ve had hundreds of new artists hit their stage every week. Popular ones include 2016 XXL Freshman Dave East and 2 Milly, the songwriters of the viral hit, Milly Rock. The KickBackz Sneaker Show will feature several live performances supporting local artists from the community who are as passionate about kicks as we are.
Art has always been a part of the sneaker game. We want our footwear to feel comfortable. But it is the look that makes us want them in the first place. Customizing and painting one’s sneakers has become a way of to express one's self. It has roots that stretch back to the creation of graffiti artwork in major cities. The paintings, sketches, drawings, and graphic design work these artists make are meaningful to us. That creativity is why we are making sure we support local artists who take part in the culture.
The KickBackz Sneaker Show is a self aware event. We see that gap between the haves and have-nots in the world. 1.2 billion people in this word live on less than $1.25 a day. Over 400 million of them are children. Many of those homeless children live in our country and close to home. They do not have access to one of life’s basic necessities: a good pair of shoes. That is why our event will double as a shoe drive where attendees can donate new or lightly worn sneakers for a good cause. Your used shoes can become new hope. We believe the sneaker community is a passionate and caring base. We are challenging every attendee to do their part and add to our drive. The shoes we collect will go to Soles4Souls, a not-for-profit organization which has recently celebrated 10 years of fighting poverty through the collection of shoes and clothing. We thank every single one of you who considers helping us with this goal.
