Sneakerheads unite! Sneaker culture is huge in Detroit. We even have StockX the stock market of sneakers, headquartered here.
The Michigan Sneaker XChange event takes place @ Huntington Place (aka: Cobo Hall) in Detroit.
At 2.4 million square feet, Huntington Place is massive.
The MSX takes place inside the 40,000-square foot Grand Riverview Ballroom (which used to be old Cobo Arena).
If you’re facing Cobo, the Grand Riverview Ballroom is on the far left of the building.
