Sneaks Up 2008

A group of sneaker heads here in San Antonio organized a very successful event this past weekend, which celebrated the sneaker culture. The event was basically a bunch of sneaker collectors showcasing their collections. The venue was full of people from all over Texas and as far as Hawaii. There were people of all ages and all races at the event and everyone had a good time looking at sneakers, listening to music and buying merchandise. Our crew, The Sour Grapes was excited to be a part of the event and we released our new summer shirt at Sneaks Up. We were a little nervous to present our work to a different city because of most our supporters are in Dallas. To our surprise, we did very well in selling our new shirts and some of the designs sold out that very day. Our first customer bought three different shirts and he wore one for the entire event. We have been down with the sneaker culture for a while now and it’s exciting to see how much it has grown in the last 2-3 years.
