Sneaker Con NYC 03-19-11 Event Recap
There are sneaker events, and then there’s Sneaker Con NYC, the best and brightest sneaker buy/sell/trade convention known to man. The turnout of 2,100+ sneakerheads broke a Sneaker Con NYC record as footwear fiends from the NYC area and around the globe touched down at 151 Sullivan St. to join in on the festivities. Sneaker Con NYC was created as a celebration of the sneaker game, and serves as the perfect haven for those who are new to the sneaker culture, veterans of the game, or somewhere in between, and judging by the massive queue waiting to get in, it was clear that the world of sneakers was focused on one building located in the SoHo district of Manhattan.
Aspecial showcase by adidas Originals featuring products from their most popular lines as well as the debut of the adidas Originals LQC was just one of the many pleasures that were available, but vendors from around the world also set up shop to show off some of the best collections of all genres. Each event-goer came dressed to impress as we witnessed a never-ending barrage of today’s sickest neck-breakers from the moment the doors opened. Of course, we’ve got a full visual recap for you if you were unable to attend, so continue reading to check out why Sneaker Con NYC is the supreme sneaker-centric event the world has ever seen, and stay tuned for a complete Sneaker Con NYC Feet Recap!
