How it took until 2017 for the epicenter of the country’s sneaker industry to host its own weeklong paean to the kick game, we’ll never know. We’re just glad it’s finally here. The first-ever Sneaker Week PDX promises not only to scratch the itch of committed sneaker heads, but also to buff that itch with a tasteful nubuck. The event features talks and films related to shoes, treatises on colors and materials, and a sneaker swap meet. If you’re not willing to get that deep into the life, though, stop by the sneaker week block party, which features performances from the likes of Mic Capes and Jon Belz, sets from Rev Shines and O.G. One, food carts, and on-site vendors. It’ll be great. Just make sure to bring your A-game, kick-wise. DIRK VANDERHART
