For over 10 years now, Sneaker Con has prided themselves as being “The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth”, leading the streetwear scene and culture with a presence all over the world. Bridging that gap between commerce and culture, Sneaker Con’s peer-to-peer marketplace and impactful branding solutions present a vibrant space with endless opportunities whilst still staying true to their roots and community.
Amassing a reach of over 4,000 exhibitors and 300,000 attendees across more than 30 cities, Sneaker Con’s extensive platform provides some of the best opportunities for vendors and collectors to buy, sell, and trade their proudest and most sought-after footwear and street culture pieces.
And now, it’s finally coming to Singapore. Making their inaugural appearance in this region, the Greatest Sneaker Show is headed to our shores for two full days of hype activities.
Calling out to all sneakerheads and enthusiasts from around the region, Sneaker Con Southeast Asia is bringing the brand’s renowned marketplace and counterculture affair to us here, complete with the full experience from their trading pit and live performances, to basketball competitions, customisation stations, authentication services, and exclusive drops. To amp it up even more, there’ll even be an indoor skatepark this time!
Mark your calendars – Sneaker Con SEA is happening at the Singapore Expo on Apr 01 and 02. The epic event will feature more than 200 local and international brands by at least 150 traders and sneaker collectors coming in from all corners of the world. While you’re there, be sure to keep your eyes peeled and ears sharp for prized drops and exclusive collaborations that you’ll not find anywhere else – including a collab between Jeranne Ang and Jeffrey Martinez, winner of Melbourne’s Ace of Customs.
Only at Sneaker Con SEA, look out for the re-launch of the Crocs Pollex Clog by Salehe Bembury, available in limited quantities of 100 pairs each day along with exclusive Sneakercon Jibbitz charm pack giveaways, or be part of the raffle for the Singapore-exclusive Jeff Staple x Stan Birch NB 2002R Series, featuring elements of the Singapore flag, gold accents, and Staple Pigeon’s iconic mascot.
Japan’s top sneaker and streetwear marketplace, SNKRDUNK, will also be showcasing exclusive tees from ANREALAGE and FACETASM, connecting Southeast Asia’s street culture with high fashion. And there’s more: they’ll also be putting up a highly-valued raffle of their own for Sneaker Con SEA attendees as well!
Don’t forget to also look out for opportunities to snag your beloved kicks at a steal as resellers and small stores showcase their best pieces at their dedicated Retail/Merchandise booths, or head over to the Trading Pit to test your negotiating skills, where you’ll get to talk shop and strike up your own deals over a full range of products from within the beating heart of Sneaker Con SEA itself.
Then bring your haul over to their Authentication station to let a team of experts examine and legitimise your purchases on-site.
For the more creative amongst us, participate in the Ace of Customs series of workshops over both days and bring home your very own personalised kicks as you pick up tips from renowned personalities such as the husband-wife duo behind FIN Fine Crafted Goods, who’ll be conducting sneaker customising workshops at Ace of Customs.
