Each year, the sprawling South by Southwest (SXSW) festival descends upon Austin, Texas, drawing tens of thousands of attendees looking for good music and film, or simply a great party. Local sneaker boutique Nice Kicks will be there, in partnership with VANS, to present the Vulcanized Vinyl Pop-up Shop during the annual event, which kicks off this year on March 9th. The shop will stock Vans Classics, as well as California models and an assortment of tees, tanks and accessories. Additionally, for the first time ever Vans will be reissuing five of its most popular band shoes on a first-come, first-served basis. Those band-centric kicks are: Slayer (3/13), Descendants (3/14), Bad Religion (3/15), Iron Maiden (3/16) and Social Distortion (3/17). The store is also offering a special concierge service, meaning your purchases will be delivered to major hotels throughout Austin so you don’t have to lug your goodies from venue to venue. The Vulcanized Pop-up Shop will be open March 9th through March 18th, from 12 pm to midnight each day. It all starts with a grand opening party on March 9th, at the Lodge on 6th Street, from 7 pm to 10 pm.
