It's finally happening! Sneaker Con Southeast Asia will take place in Singapore on April 1 and 2. The event was first announced back in 2020 but had to be postponed due to obvious reasons.
Calling itself The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth, Sneaker Con SEA promises to bring the best of street culture to our shores. Since its inception in 2009, Sneaker Con has celebrated the love for rare designs, coveted drops, and grail-worthy releases by holding over 100 events in over 40 cities around the globe. No longer reserved for Hypebeasts, the sneaker subculture has seen a meteoric rise over the years, cementing its cool status among the young, the old and the mainstream.
Here's what you can expect at Sneaker Con SEA when it takes over Singapore Expo Hall 5.
Buy, sell or trade footwear, clothing and accessories with other streetwear aficionados. Shop with ease of mind as authenticity is guaranteed thanks to Sneaker Con's Legit Check authentication service.
Panel discussions and guest appearances
Jeff Staple, a respected figure in the global streetwear scene, headlines the event alongside local stalwarts celebrating 20 years of street culture in Singapore. Catch Mark Ong (aka Mr Sabotage) of SBTG fame and Mandeep Chopra, the founder of Limited Edt in action as they discuss the future of the local street scene.
For memory's sake, snap up merch designed by Indonesian streetwear brand, AGLXY. Also known as Ageless Galaxy, the brand's hallmark designs explore street culture in foreign territories. There will also be more than 150 international traders and sneaker collectors at the event.
Fashion, food and fun
Aside from the international and local brands hawking their wares, expect street food kiosks and bars where you can rest and refuel in between your shopping. Put your new threads to the test by participating in activities like the top bins challenge, 3x3 basketball competition and rundown skate area – it's sure to be a fun time from 11am to 8pm during the show. We also hear that there'll be an after party once the lights turn down so stay tuned for more information on that.
