This past weekend the Flock invaded Long Beach for the first EVER ComplexCon, a culture festival celebrating style, music, sneakers, and art. The show was unlike any thing we have ever seen; all of street culture's pioneers, innovators, and tastemakers all under one roof.
We gave ComplexCon goers a visual timeline of the various footwear collabs we've produced over our 20 years in the business.
Notable figures well respected for their unique design, musical, acting, activism, artwork and general cultural impact were present at the inaugural event. Marc Ecko, Pharrell, Jesse Williams, French Montana, Rick Williams, Naturel, Vince Staples and Cam'ron were some of our favorite sightings.
We gave our Flock a chance to win a pair of our most recent sneaker collabs with Puma & FILA. Many got their kicks, boxes, and complimentary Sneaker Riot posters signed by jeffstaple. When those ran out, we allowed people to grab their favorite illustration from our wall and have that signed instead. The energy was amazing.
Travis Scott performed at the night show and brought the vibe, with many others including Kid Cudi, Virgil Alboh, Skrillex, Lil Yatchy and Snoop Dogg.
We thank everyone who came out to our booth this past weekend, the love and support was amazing. With the first ComplexCon going down in the history books we can't wait to see what next year has in store.
