Sneakerpedia, the world’s first user-generated online sneaker encyclopedia, made its debut launch last night in New York City, with hundreds of sneakerheads from around the world attending the celebratory event.

Eventgoers also had the opportunity to submit their own sneakers to Sneakerpedia at computer stations while entering for a chance to win a year’s worth of sneakers.
