Welcome to round 2 of the Dunkxchange Chicago Edition coming for its 2nd time bringing the sneaker market and culture back to chi town. The first dunkxchange that came to Chicago was May 12th of this past summers. It was a Debut for the dunkxchange being one of the few sneaker events that come to Chicago.
I spoke to Curtis Co-Creator of the dunkxchange about the Difference between this dunkxchange and the last as well as many details on future plans for the Dunkxchange including different collaborations with clothing brands and even a Video game competition style Dunkxchange.
“The difference between this dunkxchange and the last is that we have a lot more sponsors and more people came out to be vendors so there is a better selection. The promotion has gotten to more people and we also have Jeru the Damaja performing as well”
“In 2008 We will be doing a couple different things than our normal tour. We will be doing seasonal tours. Each tour will have a different clothing brand to do the dunkxchange T-shirts and we will do collaborations with Sneaktip, Shmack, LRG, Orisue and we are also in the talks with a local clothing line in Chicago called Enstrumental. In the 2008 tour, We will have MC battles, Madden challenge and a lot of different other things.
