Sneaker Con has made its way back to Atlanta, and boy was it something to see. If you missed out on the Sneaker Con Atlanta before this one, than check it out here, Sneaker Con ATL 2015. This year sneaker Con held their first Inaugural Hoops Classic starring the most watched YouTube Sneaker-head personalities. A compelling game of "who has more viewers" was actually an interesting idea. That was just one of the many attractions at Sneaker Con Atlanta this year, (as if thousands on Jordans and Yeezys isn't enough of a reason to bring you in.) From the Trading Pit to the 8and9 Table, all trades and sales continue to strengthen the event and its followers throughout time. Walking thru a sea of re-sellers and eager buyers gives you that open market feel, and showcases that true salesman skill not everyone has.
