“SC + NIKETOWN Sneaker Competition — Miami
SC + NIKETOWN Sneaker Competition — Miami

The sun will be shining, but not as brightly as the heat on display at NIKETOWN Miami on Friday, January 20th. The fun starts at 10pm, but get there early for a shot at picking up some ultra-limited kicks for your own collection.

[Editor’s Note: Thanks to you, our fellow shoeheads, the Miami event was a huge success! A recap will be posted soon, but in the meantime, you can talk about the event and see photos in our online forums.]

What better place to be at the height of winter than warm, sunny Miami? Think temps approaching the 80s and jaw-dropping sights at every turn (and we’re not talking about the palm trees). So take a break from the crappy weather you’re dealing with, grab your sunscreen and join us (and a few hundred fellow shoeheads) for the next stop on the Sole Collector + NIKETOWN Shoe Collection Competition World Tour.
