Now, this is an event made for streetwear fans and sneakerheads alike! The two-day Sneaker Con Toronto convention is coming to the 6ix next weekend and it's your chance to get your eyes and hands on some of the rarest and most expensive shoes ever! This is the event's third stop on their world tour and sneakerheads, get ready, because this is an event you won't want to miss.
On Sept. 21 and 22, the Enercare Centre will open its doors for hundreds of convention attendees to bring their own shoes to sell, or trade, and, let's face it, probably buy more to add to their collections! Sneaker Con travels across the world to unite vendors and shoppers for a two-day event, making it the perfect opportunity to see firsthand rare shoes that resell for a crazy amount.
According to their website, "Sneaker Con is the world's premier sneaker show, providing a huge space for vendors and attendees to buy, sell and trade some of the most sought-after footwear in the game."
In past events, shoes like the rare Red Octobers by Kanye West and even Air Mags aka "Back To The Future" have made an appearance. For some sneakerheads, that's nothing new but for new people in the scene, this is a pretty cool experience.
OFF WHITE, Yeezys, and the Travis Scott collab — you can find it all at this event.
Don't expect the resell price to be cheap, though.
The Sneaker Con website lists this recent Jordan 1 release for resell and the price is more than double what it would've been in stores. So, if you ever wondered why people lined up to buy shoes, now you know.
Whether you're in the business of reselling, love to collect shoes, or you just want to wear them all, Sneaker Con is everything and more! Tickets are on sale now and all ages are welcome.
Time to bring out your best kicks and show them off.
