Mark your calendars, sneakerheads! The ‘Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth’ — Sneaker Con — is making its way to Singapore from 1 to 3 April for the first time in Southeast Asia as a part of the Singapore Expo (in Hall 5). Luckily for Malaysians, Singapore is just a hop, skip, and jump away across the Causeway, so we can easily get in on the action.
For those who don’t know, Sneaker Con’s goal is to expand the sneaker community, bringing together a wide variety of communities to experience the immersive world of sneakers and street
culture. During this three-day event, sneakerheads will be able to visit a dedicated marketplace where they can talk shop, show off their collections, and make trades. Dubbed Sneaker Con SEA, this will be THE PLACE to be if you’re on the prowl for rare designs, coveted drops, and grail-worthy releases.
To give you an idea of the scale of Sneaker Con, they’ve held over 100 events in over 40 cities around the globe since their inception in 2009. Drop on by and experience all of these Sneaker Con trademark events at the inaugural Sneaker Con SEA:
Marketplace: Presenting over 200 international and local renowned brands and collaborations, the
Marketplace will be a thriving ground for like-minded street culture lovers and where you’ll find the bulk of the action.
Trading Pit: The backbone of every Sneaker Con, the Trading Pit is where anyone can find their desired kicks or make a quick buck with their trades. Buy, sell, or trade your footwear as you network with fellow sneakerheads from the region and beyond.
Ace of Customs: Customise sneakers and gain valuable insights from influential judges and personalities from the sneaker community.
Legit Check: Copping a pair of sneakers can be a huge investment, so needless to say, authenticity is key. Legit Check is a free authentication service offered to everyone at the
