SneakerCon Cleveland 2019 Banner
There are conventions for many things nowadays, "ComicCon, Cannabis Cup, Game Expo," so on and so forth, so no surprise that there is a sneaker convention, "SneakerCon." From Adidas to Reebok, the sneaker community has become a vast gathering of countless individuals who all share the same love and appreciation for sneakers and what they symbolize. They all congregate in convention centers from state to state all over the nation, it's quite an experience. If you have not been fortunate enough to indulge in this community of sneaker connoisseurs and how they cherish all of these amazing releases from Nike, Adidas, Jordan Brand, Reebok, and others, than you are truly missing out on an amazing adventure.
SneakerCon: Trading Pit
On March 16, 2019, SneakerCon made its way to Cleveland, Ohio for the fourth year in a row, and the excitement didn't seem to fade at all. The venue was held at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, which was massive in size and comfortably accommodated several vendors. The sneakers are not the only aspect of SneakerCon to enjoy, they provide education of the sneaker releases and promote sellers around. They use many different angles to strengthen the sneaker community; the "Trading Pit" is a small congregation of independent sellers mainly selling personal pairs and clothing from "hype" companies. The "Legit Check" is a panel of judges who are known to help assist with determining fakes releases from real ones, and aids people from getting taken advantage of. Then the "Customs," which primarily changes on the state can be freestyle designed clothes or sneakers at the event. This experience is hard to explain in words, you're just going to have to go and see.
