After a half-year absence, Sneaker Con arrives back in its original destination, New York City, for another go-round! Sneaker Con, “the premiere event for sneaker connoisseurs to buy, sell, and trade some of the most sought after footwear on the market,” will feature 100 vendors and host thousands of attendees tomorrow at its new venue, Baruch College, from 12-7 PM. Even though this venue is bigger (10,000 square feet) than the last one, I suggest you plan on getting there early. Whether you are looking for a specific pair or just trying to get some good deals, come out to Sneaker Con tomorrow! Jake and I will be in the building filming for Sole Camp and just chilling around, so if you see us, make sure to say hello as well!
In addition, the Sneaker Con staff is hosting a Pre-Event tonight from 7-10 PM at the adidas Originals store on Wooster St in Soho. DJ Clark Kent, of both music and sneaker fame, will be on the boards playing the latest hits and hip-hop classics. And if you happen to buy something at adidas Originals today, you can get into Sneaker Con for free tomorrow! If that thing is $50 or more, you will also receive the official adidas Originals Sneaker Con t-shirt. Jake can’t make it out tonight, but I think I will be there, so if you have no plans for the night, come out to that too!
Below are the addresses and other details for both Sneaker Con tomorrow and the Pre-Event tonight. See you there! (more…)
