Recently NYC hosted the latest stop in the Sneaker Con juggernaut, opening what is arguably the most influential sneaker event in the world to the latest monumental wave of sneaker freaks from all ages and walks of life.
Sneaker Con NYC was massive. Thousands of attendees poured into Basketball City on the southern end of Manhattan to buy, sell, and trade coveted kicks of all kinds. And it isn’t just buying and selling you see at Sneaker Con, the exchange is elevated to an art form where savvy investors seek to build their portfolios through an intimate knowledge of the market – snapping up the older, rare, limited and unreleased sneakers for sale.
Sneaker Con is the premier traveling event for sneaker connoisseurs to buy, sell and trade some of the most sought after footwear on the market. Organisers estimate the show generates $100,000 to $200,000 worth of sneaker sales a day, with prices ranging from $30 to $1,500, and even up to $20,000 for the super rare and classics, especially those no longer available at retail that often bring in the highest prices.
Next stop is Sneaker Con DC – Sept 14, 2013
