SneakerCon SEA: What We’re Hyped up for at The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth
Sneaker culture is a phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. From its humble beginnings as functional sporting footwear to becoming a cultural icon and fashion statement, the humble sneaker has come a long way. And if you're a fan of sneakers and street culture, then you cannot miss the inaugural SneakerCon SEA.
SneakerCon SEA promises to be bigger and better than anything you have ever seen before on our shores. The event will feature a special guest appearance by renowned designer Jeff Staple, who has collaborated with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Nike and Puma. Jeff will be bringing his extensive insights on the sneaker industry, design trends, and the future of streetwear.
In addition, 20 Years of Street with SBTG and Limited Edt will be chronicling their collaboration and efforts to elevate Singapore on the street culture map. The exhibit will showcase the unique designs, collaborations, and projects that have made them a force to be reckoned with in the sneaker and streetwear industry.
Attendees can also look forward to exclusive merchandise from Indonesian streetwear label Ageless Galaxy (AGLXY), who are coming onboard as a collaborator to produce a limited-edition collection for the event.
Get your mind blown at the sneaker marketplace, where over 200 international and local vendors will be selling the most sought-after sneakers, attendees can expect to see popular releases, hard-to-get sneakers, and holy grails. Whether you are a seasoned collector or a casual fan, there is bound to be something for you to cop.
