Sneaker Con New York 2011 Recap

Sneaker Con 2011 held court in the hip and chic bohemian underbelly of downtown NYC today. Vendors, kids, and collectors alike, sojourned to Sullivan street to partake in a buy, sell, trade, amalgamation of sneakers. The barrier to entry was steep by way of a three city block lineup of sneaker freakers vying for limited space within the venue. Enthusiasts compared sneaker heat and talked shop on the line, but once inside kicks commerce took over. Well known shops and independents alike manned crisply stocked booths and showcased their wares from deadstock Jordans to independent clothing brands. The life force behind Sneaker Con however is the hand to hand sneaker trafficking that takes place on the showroom floor. Kicks were piled high in every nook and cranny of the venue, and many patrons held their prized sneaker possessions high above their head shouting a title, size, and asking price. This was the most well attended Sneaker Con on record, proving that the market for high profile and after market kicks is here to stay for the time being.
