Sneaker Con returned to New York City this weekend, hosting the massive event for the first time at Pier 92-94 in the region’s historic waterfront district on the West Side Highway. The sneaker buy/sell/trade event quickly outgrew Basketball City, where it was held the last three NYC dates, and the new venue was just enough room to hold all the attendees that came from all around the globe. This weekend’s date was by far the largest in the event’s history, as thousands of folks poured into the building to buy, sell, and trade the most popular and sought-after footwear in the market.
On top of all the vendors and attendees, brands like Johnny Cupcakes, Staple Design, Jason Markk, Rastaclat, and many more set up shop to showcase their own unique products. Also, the Sneaker News booth was open for the first time with a special “on-feet” photo booth for all who came by. Below we have a selection of some of the incredible sights of Sneaker Con NYC, so take a look through the photo gallery and stay tuned for the latest updates on Sneaker Con as we approach the fall season.
