This past weekend, a few members of the RIF team had the pleasure of heading down to San Diego to check out the 2nd official SD Sneaker Swap event. First off, we'd like to thank everyone who made this event possible. It was a GREAT event overall and the turnout was tremendous. It was a good feeling to see the sneaker culture in full swing.
There were plenty of give aways and raffles throughout the event. They even had a wheel you could spin to win prizes, it seemed to be the crowd favorite.
A subtle, yet very key difference between this show and others of the past was the food. S/O to the SNACK bar, we were able to get delicious meals here for a great price.
Sinfully Sweet was among the vending tables at the event and below you can see some of their work. Who wouldn't have a happy birthday with a Tiffany Dunk cake.
Personally, I grabbed the Yeezy 2 vanilla and raspberry cupcake which was BOMB.
They even had Air Mag cupcakes that each came specially packaged. Be sure to check out their website here.
S/O the homie @Sk8theGr8 who was in attendance with a nice table. He decided to bring out all the kids sized heat to the event which no one else had.
All GS sizes.
Here's a close up at the majority of his table.
Take a look at the toddler sized shoes as well.
Speaking of Baby shoes, check out this crazy OG Jordan collection featuring only size 10c J's. This was by far one of the best displays at the entire event.
The homie Lavish had his vendor table set up at the event as well, nice to see you brotha.
Take a look at some of the Heaters on his table.
Talk about a Lavish SET of shoes, his & hers featuring some of the most sought after kicks.
Another table that had plenty of heat was the SharpShoeter's, nice to meet you man. His table consisted of some of the older Air Maxes and SB's that you simply can't find today.
He even had a pair of Custom "Skunk" Air Max 1's.
Here's a close up of his table.
Shoutout to Kolorblind Shoes who was in attendance. Nice to meet you guys, they had a TON of shoes for sale.
Here's a few close ups of their table.

Take your pick.
The venue was so packed, people had to resort to setting up their kicks on the floor.
Here's a look at a few random tables from the Sneaker Swap.
Below, you can see an additional table.
The table below had plenty of heaters.
There's nothing compared to a pair of OG Space Jams, yellowed and all.
In addition to shoes, there was a pleasant variety of sneaker-inspired artwork on display at the sneaker swap too.
This was a nice piece showing the recently released Atmos AM 90 "Duck Camo"
We still have select sizes available of these shoes in case you missed out.
