Defined by the Urban Dictionary as “a person who collects limited, rare, OG, or flat-out exclusive kicks,” the “sneakerhead” has emerged as an increasingly ubiquitous character with lasting economic impact. Widespread with celebrity endorsements (Chuck Taylor, Michael Jordan, Kanye West, et al.), high-end designer collaborations and limited-edition offerings, the multi-billion-dollar industry owes plenty to the resale market — which plays out online, in niche boutiques and at gatherings like Kixpo. Organized and produced by the sneaker specialists of Deadstock Crew, the expo expands on previous hits in the Dallas area with a one-day event uniting buyers, sellers, customizers and collectors of sneakers, apparel and street-smart accessories. In addition to “one-time-only pop-up shops from local and national brands and boutiques,” Kixpo’s first San Antonio outing promises live music, DJs, raffles and giveaways. $10-$50, 1-6pm Sat, Austin Highway Event Center, 1948 Austin Hwy., (210) 878-4053, kixpo.com. — BR
