The first Sneaker Con event was held yesterday at Times Square Arts Center in New York City, being that it’s a new sneaker buy/sell/trade and showcase event the press and turnout was incredible. Over 1,000 people came through, the line was never ending and the place was packed! Big guns like DJ Clark Kent, The Mayor, All Day and Stash were in attendance, NY Mag (peep the video below) came through to do some interviews and sellers like Bridge Footwear and OSneaker were on hand to offer up older, rare, limited and unreleased sneakers for sale. The event was pretty chill, I had fun.
I’m not a collector or seller but I was there just chillin’ with my people, helping out and covering the event, it was crazy traffic throughout the day. Of course I needed to rock some exclusive joints, thank goodness for the Nike Sportswear x Nylon Magazine Dunks– got many requests for pictures and questions about them ish. They’re definitely FIYAH, I need the other colors too- they’ll be released in June! Outfit details below.
