Africa’s largest sneaker trading event returns with an even bigger and better line-up.

Founder and co-director of SXC, Zaid Osman, is one of South Africa’s most notable sneaker collectors and aficionados. Having spent his formative years growing up in the United States of America, Osman brought with him not only a great love for sneakers but also ideas on how to build the sneaker culture in South Africa.

The live entertainment line-up will include artists such as Cassper Nyovest, Youngsta CPT, J.Molley, Nadia Nakai and Frank Casino. Local DJs in attendance are noted as being DJ Capital, JJ Fresh and Lord Veezus. The event will also play host to local fashion labels, big-name brand activations, food vendors, live sneaker customisation, as well as a barber on site.
Special guests at the event are London-based clothing label The Concept Club. Founded in 2016, the British label brings stylish football jersey concepts to life. Available globally, The Concept Club combines innovative imagination of the most skilled designers with the collective enthusiasm of their members, to create clothing that you could only imagine.
