In major news, Sneaker Con is making its way to Sydney for the first time. For the unacquainted, it’s the world’s largest sneaker convention and the largest live sneaker trading platform. If you’re well into collecting kicks or have recently developed sneaker fever, you’ll want to check this out.
Since kicking off in 2009, Sneaker Con has welcomed millions of sneakerheads in more than 40 cities around the world to an event that’s all about buying, selling and trading hyped, rare and limited-edition shoes.
As for what to expect, you’ll be able to dive into Sneaker Con’s famous trading pit, use some onsite sneaker identification tech called “LEGIT Check” to suss whether those Off-White Converse are real or fake; there’ll be a customization zone with designers creating personalised kicks for you in real time, panel discussions all about trainers, digital platform showcases, giveaways and more.
It’s set to be a total sneaker riot, and you absolutely need to head over here for tickets.
