Complexcon 2017

Wit so much drama in the L-B-C...

If you read Complex magazine or follow them on Instagram, you’ll know that they’re the center of pop culture. From Sneaker Shopping segments with Joe la Puma to Everyday Struggle, Complex is no stranger when it comes to sneaker culture, fashion, and art. From sneaker panels, lit food trucks, to exclusive sneaker drops, to the concerts. Complexcon was overwhelming af! This year marked the second Complexcon at the Long Beach Convention Center where the youth got to soak up the vibes from exclusive sneaker drops to surprise music performances. Being a sneakerfreak, I was hella ecstatic to see which kicks were droppin and ya’ll I was not disappointed. I didn’t cop any heat because 1.) I overpacked on purpose 2.) I was really only there for the experience. Unfortunately, I do not have time to write a book about my experience, so how bout I just give ya’ll a list in terms of what went down on Day 2. Enjoy the recap:
