Sneaker Con SEA brings the brand’s famed street culture experience to Singapore
Just getting in on the sneaker game? A long-time fan of sneakers and street culture? Either way, huge news is headed this way. Otherwise known as “The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth”, Sneaker Con has led the world of streetwear, street culture, and sneakerheads all over with their exciting presence, running for more than a decade now.
Finally making their way to Southeast Asia, Sneaker Con Southeast Asia will debut in the region with an epic show in Singapore. Giving fans and sneakerheads in the region two full days of hype activities, the inaugural Sneaker Con SEA will be bringing the brand’s renowned experience in its entirety and more to our shores.
A global platform that bridges commerce and culture, Sneaker Con’s famed peer-to-peer marketplace presents a massive space for traders of all kinds to get in on the action, generating endless opportunities for collectors, sellers, and casual shoppers alike.
Boasting numbers of over 4,000 exhibitors and 300,000 attendees from shows in more than 30 cities, it’s no wonder they’re able to gather and showcase some of the proudest and most sought-after footwear and street culture pieces on the market.
Happening at the Singapore Expo on Apr 01 and 02, be sure to not miss out on the action. The spectacular event will witness over 200 local and international brands brought to us by at least 150 traders and collectors coming in from all parts of the world.
On the Trading Pit, challenge your eyes, speed, and negotiation skills as you go up against shoppers and traders in a bid to strike up the best deals for yourself. The heart of Sneaker Con SEA itself, you’ll find a full range of products up for grabs there; we’re sure you’ll find some of your favourite pieces around.
Alternatively, keep a look out for the most popular kicks and apparel put up by resellers and small stores at dedicated Retail/Merchandise booths. The best part? You’ll be able to examine and legitimise your haul at Sneaker Con SEA by simply bringing it over to their Authentication station, where a team of experts are on hand to authenticate every item on-site.
If you’re looking to snag yourself some prized drops and exclusive collab pieces at Sneaker Con SEA, look forward to a collaboration between Jeranne Ang and the winner of Melbourne’s Ace of Customs, Jeffrey Martinez. We’ve also heard that Mr. Sabotage and Jeff Staple will be collaborating on something special of their own – don’t forget to keep a lookout while you’re there!
Presenting exclusive tees from ANREALAGE and FACETASM, SNKRDUNK connects the region’s street culture with high fashion. Dubbed Japan’s top sneaker and streetwear marketplace, SNKRDUNK will also be putting up a highly-valued raffle of their own for attendees.
Happening only at Sneaker Con SEA is the re-launch of Crocs’ Pollex Clog by Salehe Bembury. Fans will have to act fast; the limited-edition drop will only have 100 pairs available for grabs each day, along with Sneakercon Jibbitz charm pack giveaways. Attendees will also get to be part of a raffle for the Singapore-exclusive Jeff Staple x Stan Birch NB 2002R Series with elements inspired by the Singapore flag, gold accents, and Staple Pigeon’s mascot.
Not only will you get a chance to engage and interact with international streetwear legends, sneaker artists, and street culture aficionados, Sneaker Con SEA’s Ace of Customs presents a series of workshops over both days for us to spill our creative juices and bring home our very own kicks, guided by tips from pros such as the duo behind FIN Fine Crafted Goods.
