“It’s More Than Just Sneakers” Sydney 2023 Recap


It’s good to be back in our home town on tour. This time around, it was Sydney’s turn to show up for the “It’s More Than Just Sneakers” Lifestyle tour on October 7th.

The community gathered once again at PCYC Auburn which has become our Sydney base for the past few years. For the Sydney attendees, we had some amazing giveaways and freebies on offer thanks to our amazing sponsors.

eBay were back in attendance running their basketball arcade shooting machine and giving away some sneakers. Along with eBay, one of our headline supporters this year were the guys from The Cheatcoders Podcast who ran a live podcast during our event.

Some other special guests included Sophie Aye, a visual artist from Sydney who was doing an amazing Kobe Bryant piece during the event. DJ Klasik, one of Cada’s hosts and long time friend of The Kickz Stand, was our host. DJ Who, the current DMC NSW Champion and 3rd place DMC Australian Finalist performed along with DJ K-Time who is the Parramatta Eels DJ and supported Masked Wolf on his Australian Tour and one of Australia’s & South East Asia’s best DJs, DJ Edo.
