Crossroads Releases Brand List for Feb 3rd and 4th Event

With only two weeks until Crossroads hits downtown San Diego, over 100 skate brands will be exhibiting at the event. On February 3rd and 4th, the PetCo stadium parking, adjacent to ASR, will transform into the definitive collection of skate hard goods, footwear and apparel. The new location provides the highest level of convenience for retailers looking to buy in an efficient two-day window.
 
“Exhibitors and retailers have been really supportive of the new location and direction of Crossroads. The show continues to gain momentum and I’m excited to see it stand alone as a skateboarding event,” says Jamie Thomas, Professional Skateboarder and Founder of Crossroads. “I look forward to seeing everyone come together once again as we work to navigate a positive future for our industry.”
 
Crossroads will feature skateboarding’s top hardgoods brands including the brands of Bakerboys, Black Box, Deluxe, DNA, Dwindle, NHS, Tum Yeto and many more. Skate specialty buyers traveling to San Diego for Crossroads will combine with ASR and CLASS@ASR’s established global mix of specialty skate/surf lifestyle, boutique and department store buyers. The fusion of categories makes ASR Access a unique platform for labels to reach the right buyers and media.
 
Footwear will also have a big presence at Crossroads with Adidas, Circa, Converse, DC, Dekline, Fallen, etnies, Vox and more attending the show at Crossroads.
 
Crossroads also will have the best skateboard magazine’s present with Skateboarder, The Skateboard Mag, Thrasher and Transworld Skateboarding attending the show.
 
“This is an important buying season for us, especially having recently opened our fourth store. We’re looking for sales growth and brands that can help us do that this year,” says Kenitha Proctor, Co-owner of Cosmic in Kentucky and Ohio. “We’re only in town two days to buy all across the board; men’s and women’s apparel, shoes, accessories and hard goods. Having Crossroads across the street [from ASR] will save us a lot of time and the need for a car.”
