This past weekend, Sneaker Con made a stop at the Windy City Fieldhouse in Chicago – the birthplace of Michael Jordan’s illustrious NBA career. A varying crowd of younger hobbyists and older aficionados (and everyone else in between) joined in to buy, sell, and trade the best sneakers on the planet, and the huge turnout was proof that Sneaker Con is serving the public in the way that it intends! Sponsored by adidas Originals, Leaders 1354 and New Era Chicago, the city’s best representatives of the sneaker game and urban fashion culture came through to make Sneaker Con Chicago another successful outing. Continue reading for a full event recap of Sneaker Con Chicago and mark your calendars for June 30th, as Sneaker Con returns to New York City at a much larger location (potentially the biggest Sneaker Con yet)!

damn everyone in there look the same smh sneakerheads use to be different from all over now we all dress the same with camo shorts with a sneakershirt thats one size to small and a snapback nd some "Exclusive" jays that 25-50 other people have on smh c
6th pic down, airgordons.com, that guy sells fake shoes on his website or b grade, whatever you want to call it-if you don't believe me go to his website, he has all sizes available for black cement 3s for 200$, wow so messed up that he passes his stuff off at sneaker con
Best lick was o-boi who got those defining moment blk.& gold 6's for $250. Prices were decent, can't wait till next time. Still haven't sold My concords tho
I'm the guy in grey tank in third pic from bottom on the second page. Too bad my South Beach LeBron 8 got cut off from the pic.
The chick on the 1st pg. 4th pic. (holding the cell phone) lookin' fine! On the other hand, so many dope kicks! Man, wish I was there!
B-Grades are Legit NIKE shoes, ie saw lots of foams b-gr comeing in old orange box, as well as a lot of old SBs that instead of the silver/pink boxes has the old orange ones..but box label is the same of the regular pair or nike legit ones, and most of them has a" b" on inside tag..but all legit, and most of the times are exctly like a pair you find at footlocker,Nike store etc
Yeah your right he will tell you if b grade or not. But yeah people get confused about b grades.. They are not fakes they are factory variants and will be labeled as such. And people not everything at outlets is b grade either, only a small amount of items and they will be labeled as such on the box and with a "b" on the inside of the tongue label. You also may come across kicks out there labeled ES (employee store) on all labels and these are not b grade either..I have a pair labeled this way that came from the employee store on the Nike campus. But yeah I heard the same bout Gordon but didnt see any fakes or variants at sneakercon atleast..
Huge difference betwn fakes and b grades bruh. But if he isn't saying they are b grades then that is foul.
She was a Li-Ning rep. They were raffling off a pair of 'limited' kicks but not sure who actually won.
