Get your shine on at Sneaker Prom and Shoe Shine this weekend at 303 Agency and City Hall

This weekend's Sneaker Prom and Shoe Shine are easily becoming among the most popular sneaker events in the country. Having involved over 200 artists and businesses over the years, both are outstanding community-oriented events, as well as a can't-be-missed showcase the most sophisticated stylings in sneaker art. If you're serious about your kicks, this is what's really going on this weekend.

A formal evening of cocktails, dancing, with the crowning of Sneaker King and Queen, the second annual Sneaker Prom (see pics of last year's inaugural gala), jumps off tonight at 303 Agency (944 Lincoln). The prom, which will be overseen by MU$A and Chonz, serves as the official kick off for Shoe Shine No 5, which goes down tomorrow afternoon at City Hall.

That event features a sneaker exhibit and various competitions, including a design contest with the Art Institute of Denver, a coloring contest and sneaker comp for the kids and a competition devoted to picking Denver's Best Men's Sneaker, Best Women's Sneaker, Best Custom Sneaker, Best Vintage Sneaker and Best Overall Show Sneaker.
