Get your Yeezy's ready for Sneaker Con Vancouver
Pull out your sharpie’d Off-White Jordans and your Supreme socks because Sneaker Con is coming to Vancouver. The massive convention focuses on all things sneakers and will give people an opportunity to buy (or sell) their favourite pairs.
It’s no secret that Vancouver’s streetwear scene has exploded over the past few years. Boutiques, vintage stores, and private resellers have jumped on Vancouver’s desire for the most ‘hype’ brands in the business. Haven sells BAPE, an Off-White flagship opened recently, all we need now is a Supreme (maybe in 5 years).

If you think that sneakers are an extension of high school parties, we should probably try to correct that approach right now. Sneaker culture has invaded every aspect of the fashion world, from collaborations to special releases to one-off projects. Just look at the Adidas/Pharrell and Chanel collaboration from 2017 if you don’t believe us.
Even if you’re not looking to buy, Sneaker Con is a great opportunity to explore this growing market, and chat with some of the heavyweights in Vancouver’s scene.
