Sneaker heads have a chance to buy, sell and trade rare and hard-to-find shoes Sunday, and contribute to a good cause at the same time.

A donation of a pair of gently used shoes will get you free admission into the 2013 Kix_Mas Sneaker and Fashion convention. The Educational Enrichment Foundation will donate all shoes to the Tucson Unified School District clothing bank for children in need.  

The convention, which will be held at the Holiday Inn, 4550 South Palo Verde Road, from noon to 6 p.m., will also feature rap battles and performances from local hip hop groups. There will be sneaker raffles and other giveaways.
