Sneaker Con is the premier event for sneaker connoisseurs to buy, sell, and trade some of the most sought after footwear on the market. A patron can bring as many shoes as they can carry to get on the trade floor and work their magic. Vendors include a variety of sneaker shops and collectors, as well as many up & coming clothing and accessory brands. Since 2009 Sneaker Con has shifted the goal of "sneaker events" back to the primary focus of encouraging business and the passion for sneakers. With its founding grounds being New York City, they've managed to inspire a large following down the east coast through Washington D.C. and Miami, and recently had debut shows in Los Angeles and Chicago. It was in March that Sneaker Con made it's last showing in Miami but now they head back to South Beach in the summer HEAT, bringing HEAT, and celebrating a HEAT championship. If you're anywhere in the south east region you DO NOT want to miss this one.
