The concept of the DXC/Dunkxchange came to fruition in 2005 by owner Gary Hughes, after purchasing a pair of fake sneakers from China. Gary, being a sneaker enthusiast, was confident he wasn’t the only individual going through the same debacle. Having a history in the Fashion & Music industry he decided to host an event that gave fellow sneaker admirers an opportunity to Buy, Sell, & Trade Sneakers & Apparel. In 8 years & with over 200 events DXC has grown to be a formative staple in the Sneaker, Music, Fashion, & Art Community.
Last March I was fortunate enough to be in San Francisco during DunkXchange SF and it was mind blowing. Outside of it being my first time on the west coast, seeing another side of sneaker culture was an amazing experience. I was able to network with many vendors and fully immerse myself in the moment of sneakerhead heaven. Below are some shots from the event. I look forward to attending when the tour comes to south florida and prior to that will post a "Getting ready for DXC" blog.
