The NBA Lockout may still be raging on in the NBA but that doesn’t stop sneaker lovers across the South to converge upon the Toyota Center for the summer edition of the 2011 Sneaker Summit on Sunday, July 31st. If you’ve attended a previous one then you know the rules, booths and shops from all over the country come down, show off some of their latest and newest gear while sneaker collectors walk up and down the area showcasing their rarest kicks.

There’s DJ’s spinning, b-boy battles randomly breaking out, contests and prizes to be won all for the love of sole and the past attendees list? How about sneaker enthusiasts Bun B, Greg Street, DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito Garcia, Levi Maestro, Dante Ross and more.
