Sneaker Con, the most celebrated sneaker summit in the world, finally hit Miami this past weekend as the doors of the Fieldhouse in the University of Miami opened its doors to thousands of eager sneaker fans and vendors of all kinds. It was the first such occasion for Sneaker Con, and the Miami natives as well as the sneakerheads who traveled long and far to arrive did not disappoint with their fervent passion for the footwear sub-culture. Youngsters set up shop on the carpeted floor, looking to sell or trade their kicks with there peers, while others came to experience the unstoppable fashion phenomenon. Another note of interest: these sneaker-centric events are typically male-dominated affairs, but Miami proved to have quite a number of female sneaker fiends – more so than D.C. and NYC. It was yet another successful trip for Sneaker Con, so check out the event recap of Sneaker Con Miami and stay tuned to Sneaker News for a ‘Feet’ recap of the event!
