sneaker con nyc june 2012 recap Sneaker Con NYC June 2012   Event Recap

The last Sneaker Con venue was bursting at the seams, as it could not contain the mass crowd that showed up to take part in the best sneaker event of its kind. So, the event moved uptown and a bit East as Sneaker Con took over a collegiate-sized gymnasium as Baruch College opened its doors to host the biggest NYC event in history! The gym was packed front to back with amazing vendors showing off their collections and with a special preview showcase of adidas Originals’ upcoming gear, and even a number of notable sneakerheads in the game popped through, like Ed Lover, Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks, Jack Ballard of the New England Patriots, DJ Clark Kent, Mayor and All Day. The line was hundreds deep hours before the doors opened, but luckily the venue was large (and cool) enough to keep everyone comfortable in their kicks. Check out this full-throttle recap of Sneaker Con NYC June 2012 and let us know if you spot yourself in one of the photos, and stay tuned for the much-anticipated ‘Feet’ recap!

line was ridiculous... i got on line around 11 and didn't get in til like 2:30. never had to wait that long at a sneakercon. lots of kids cutting the line of course. the heat was terrible.. luckily the italian ice spot across the street (Ralph's) was nice enough to send some dudes over and give out samples to people in line and take orders and run them across the street. i don't blame the sneakercon crew for the huge line, it was Baruch's checkpoint that made everything so slow. inside was great though, crazy heat and good deals. vendors are usually pretty nice too lots of free stuff to give away. sick atmosphere, worth the unusual wait. i'm definitely still going to the next one.

Why Does It Matter To Know What's Behind The Shoe If You Like The Shoe You Like It I Never Knew There Was A "Game" Behind The Shoe That You Like An That If You Bought It An Didn't Know It's History Your Concidered An "Hypebeast".

I picked up a DS pair of Kobe VI Chaos for $150 while I was there so I can't complain .. I rocked my "SVSM" Lebron 9's had dudes breakin their necks lol ... for ppl to say it was a hypebeast event probably just mad the line was too long

that's false .. I was there, and there definitely was alot of HEAT in the building!! OGs, Customs, New Releases, Euro exclusives, Tier 0 releases, etc everywhere, don't judge the event based on a couple pics SN posted. It was a great event dispite the weather outside and metal detector causing a looooooooong line but well worth the wait.

Just a week before the event, Baruch College decided they needed everyone to go through metal detectors which really caught us off guard. They really tied our hands and just wouldn't give us any leeway. When we first signed on for the venue, there were no such restrictions which would have made getting in very easy and fast. We even had advance tickets which was also shut down by Baruch. We apologize to everyone who stuck it out and waited to get in. Everyone appreciated the huge space we had this time but our goal will be to keep the event in a huge space but with out the entrance issue for the next NYC event in a few months.

by the time i reached the line was at least 2 hours. this had to be done at a venue that had a bigger gate than a city college gym. money motivates most and i think that can be said in respect to the organizers of this event. i left because of the long line. at $15 a head, if only 200 people were like me and left (and trust me a ton more left because of the line) the gate lost 3 stacks just there alone. screw it, my galaxy dunks with the matching galaxy elite socks blew all those hypebeasts out the water anyway. see my wdywt entry the day of

"The sneaker game is dead"! Man grow the fuck up! There's no such thing as a "sneaker Game". Buy what you want, trade what you want, and sell what you want. It's not a game, just Business!!!

actual vendors tend to stay a little less than places like flight club, but are on the higher end of sneakercon prices just because a lot of their stuff is either deadstock or real close and they have the more popular heat, but usually you can haggle a little. the real deals come from like the regular people that come, especially if they're looking to try to get rid of something.

Obviously they're customs if they have baby tiffany's cuz those were never made. This guy actually makes other nice customs and it was a sick look for his whole fam to rock Tiffs so stop hating. He wasn't trying to sell them to anyone so who cares. That Fam has SWAG!
