On the precipice of a weekend defined in part by its line-ups (or lack thereof), we can’t help but think of another, considerably more comfortable way for like-minded sneakerheads to gather before copping some serious heat. Following up on the success of May’s Chicago premiere engagement, Sneaker Con NYC returns for the first 2012 rendition of the original gathering that started it all. Growing crowds mean a departure from the Sullivan Street venue to one of the newer buildings on Baruch College’s New York campus. The June 30th event will feature 10,000 square feet of the best sneakers in the world, nearly a hundred vendors and thousands of sneakerheads, and tickets for the Saturday, June 30th Sneaker Con are available in advance from EventBrite. Let us know if you can make it, ‘Like’ Sneaker Con on Facebook and stick with Sneaker News for updates in the coming weeks.

Sneaker Con returned to NYC this past weekend, opening up to one of the biggest crowds in Sneaker Con history. With an endless line-up wrapping around the entire block for most of the day, sneakerheads from the tri-state area showed up to buy, sell, and trade their kicks in time for the Holiday season. Again, adidas Originals represented with a sick look-see preview of its upcoming Originals and Jeremy Scott models, and hundreds of vendors and patrons filled up the venue with some of the latest sneakers to have hit the market. It was sneaker hysteria for the entire event, and as the day wore on, sellers made some attractive deals to unload some of their stock, like offering free snap-backs or discounted t-shirts with sneaker purchases. Sneaker Con once again proved to be the best sneaker event of its kind, but for those who are SCNYC veterans, say good-bye to the venue because the next time Sneaker Con hits the Big Apple, it’ll be at a larger venue. Check out a quick recap from the event below and don’t forget that Sneaker Con will hit Los Angeles next week on December 17th!
