The H-Town Sneaker Summit was founded in December of 2003. It is a Bi-Annual Event held in Houston, TX each Summer and Winter, where sneaker enthusiasts from all walks of life gather to buy, sell, trade, display, browse, and discuss rare and fashionable sneakers, clothing, and accessories in a large party atmosphere.
From its humble beginnings in local sports bars, the H-Town Sneaker Summit quickly grew to become the World’s largest community based sneaker event. After out growing night clubs, and concert halls in a only short number of years, the H-Town Sneaker Summit began to make history. In January 2011 The H-Town Sneaker Summit became the first ever sneaker and fashion event to be held in a professional sports arena, the Toyota Center, also known as the home of the Houston Rockets NBA Franchise. The following year in 2012 the H-Town Sneaker Summit moved to the more spacious Reliant Park, also known as home of the 2012-2013 NFL AFC South Back To Back Champions, the Houston Texans. Most recently in 2013 The H-Town Sneaker Summit held their ninth annual winter event during the most celebrated weekend in footwear, NBA All Star weekend. Shortly afterward Complex named the H-Town Sneaker Summit as one of ’50 Moments That Changed Sneaker Culture Forever’.
