WHY WE COSIGN: Named after the book by Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point adapts the philosophical concept of change to its sneaker lifestyle. It is the first and only sneaker lifestyle boutique in Downtown Houston, and attempts to embrace the ever changing streetwear lifestyle by treating it as a work of art.

H-Town's main stop for hard to find kicks and labels is located on the ground floor of the Historic Humble Building, and features artwork by Gregory Michael Carter, Samantha Perez, Saba Jawda and Jacqueline Levine.

"The Tipping Point is more than a boutique...everything we do communicates who The Tipping Point is. The lifestyle, the shopping experience, and events really are an extension of the brand and it's very important to our long term success. Hopefully we can continue to bring a new energy and mentality to the Houston community...and truly be The Tipping Point." says co-founder Kenneth Baugh.

BRANDS CARRIED: G-Shock, Head Porter, Nike, Puma, Vans, Converse, adidas, Onitsuka Tiger, The Tipping Point Private Line and Head Porter.
