Sneaker Con’s NYC stop over the weekend was a sight to see, as thousands of attendees poured into Basketball City on the southern end of Manhattan to buy, sell, and trade coveted footwear of all kinds. Of course if you show up you’ve got to make sure the sneakers on your feet are proper as well, and the convention goers certainly delivered on that front with all sorts of rare collabs, forgotten vintage gems, one of ones, and more. Continue reading to see the sneakers people were working with for Sneaker Con NYC this weekend and tell us in the comments which of them surprised you the most.

NYC shoe game dope as always. love the retro nike joints. BHM hyper dunks were the shit ima be looking for those (Black Man Workin), I enjoyed the yeezys I just wish everyone wouldn't duplicate the color-ways so much. over all NYC did they thang.
Dunno how some dudes can be so un-hairy... Shaving I guess....Unless, you ride bicycles at professional level, it's just ridiculous...
NYC came to play. Hell ya.
Really great stuff - My faves are the SB Jedis, BHM Hyperposites, and the gold Lebron 4s.
Sneaker con was awsome had a blast been in the shoe game but the NY show has always been on a weekend I couldn't make it made my first trip with my boys from south jersey and I'm going again no doubt think we are gonna make the trip to DC this year also if you haven't went to one yet its worth the trip and bring your bank roll cuz the heat is every where and the deals are good if you are willing to look and talk you cn find deals I had a blast
on page 6 dude got the snakeskin 4 customs, al harrington wore same customs 4's but a little different, which has the better look?
them green glow 4s aren't bad....i was thinkin of passing on em' but seeing the pic of em and on feet, they are straight...i still dont like the light grey, but they aint bad at all forreal
page 2, 2nd pic.....I hope thats a girl in them paranorman foams becuz them skinnys is a little too TIGHT ...and this is coming from a guy who wears skinnys, but not hugging my lil' man like that.....smh nah
The crazy socks wouldn't be as bad if not that many people do it. Almost everybody does it, and some don't even go together
NYC proves once again why they are the sneaker capital.
i like the Chrome 2’s, jedis, clear JS wings, bin 2’s, mocha 3’s, AERO JAMS, air raid 2’s, caro pro’s, safaris, mvp LB 7’s, wmns atmos AM1, coral bapestas, SEALS, answer 3’s.
But my winner is OG hares, those are a top 5 sneaker for me personally
A lot of female sneakerheads have absolutely no fashion sense . Don't want to be cocky but you don't only wear skinny jeans/tights with kicks -__-
im just laughing at how rediculous the person with electric green pants and paranormans probably looked
I feel like at these conventions sneaker companies new or in working should use these conventions as a way to introduce new sneaker designs to the game or Q&A the people what they want to see in the future. Like E3 or Comic Con introduce previews, new shoe ideas, companies, and whatever else you can for the sneaker industry.
That pant cuff rolling is so gay... And don't wear foams if you're a lady with skinny jeans because they look like boots :/ people can't dress for their lives...
Those zoom rookie galaxies look like they're about to burst! Shorts were a bad choice!(Ron burgandy voice)
@Jeffery1212 What where the prices like How much did the Vience beach kobes, scoring title kd 4 and the aunt pearl kd 4. What where the prices of those shoes?
@armstronghold60 Blake Griffin Galaxy Hyperdunk
@kshaun12 that's my friend she is a girl
@KrisMads I thought those were a pair of Mrcartoons but they look official
@donadamsky yeah they had so sure fire...no doubt
@donadamsky she's a girl
I concur. I mean wearing 2 different color ways of a shoe is 1 thing, but to wear 2 completely different shoes(mutumbos and iverdons guy) is just dressing like a hobo.
@DJAMCRACKPIPE DAYUUUUUUM, I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT NOTICED? WHY IS THAT? WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?
@MartinD44 I was asked by the photographer to wear them like that. i was actually changing shoes when he saw me. so that the reason behind to different shoes
@MartinD44 I think its more of a "show and tell" type of thing I would do it at any sneaker function just to show off my shoe game in a crazy way, but far as doing it for any other reason MAJOR VIOLATION
Fair enough. I figured the owner would come forward and explain after I went after him so hard. That's about the only reason I could understand as to why someone would do that. Good clarification.
@VNTG_BMW @MartinD44 Well that's part of the process of picking what you wear when you got a collection though. You can't bring everything, and you certainly can't wear everything, so you have to choose wisely. Dude couldn't choose so he wore 2 shoes which have absolutely no connection to each other??? Major foul. Not even the same companies! Someone wearing the thunder and lightning 4s is understandable. Ok so the dude has both pair and wants to show em off. That's lame but I'll let it pass. This dude with Iversons and Mutumbos makes my brain and my eyes hurt. It reminds me of homeless people who are wearing 4 layers of clothing and have on 1 dress shoe and 1 running shoe. That's just me, and to each his own
