SC + NIKETOWN Sneaker Competition — Seattle
SC + NIKETOWN Sneaker Competition — Seattle

The wind will be blowing and the rain will be pouring, but the crazy heat on display at NIKETOWN Seattle on Friday, March 17th will warm you up right quick. 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 Seattle 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 celebrate St. Patty’s Day than the Emerald City? Yeah, yeah, so it’ll be cold, wet and windy, but grab your GORE-TEX and join us (and a few hundred fellow shoeheads) for an event no self-respecting shoehead will want to miss.
