Collectors come together for first-ever Sneaker Swap

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Every summer, comic book and pop culture fans from around the world travel to San Diego for Comic-Con.

But this weekend, sneaker collectors from across Southern California packed the Scottish Rite Center in Mission Valley for the first-ever "Sneaker Swap."

Dozens of vendors were on-hand to give sneaker fans the chance to buy, sell and trade the collectible shoes, including the always-popular Air Jordans.

Organizers say they created Sneaker Swap to give collectors a chance to come together and have fun. And they say this is just the beginning.

"We definitely have the ultimate goal of bringing this event to something on to match the scale of Comic-Con. We wanted to be the sneaker version of Comic-Con for San Diego," said Sneaker Swap Co-Founder Timothy Sheppard. "We want people in Southern California and surrounding areas to come out and experience what we have to offer because it's a good thing and we definitely have a good thing going on here."

Organizers hope to hold Sneaker Swap events at least twice a year.
