The inaugural National Sneaker Day was this past Saturday, November 5. What better way for sneaker enthusiasts to celebrate their passion than to attend The Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth— Sneaker Con? The showcase event made its way back to its birthplace of New York City this past weekend for the city’s first two-day event of buying, selling, and trading sneakers. Seas of shoe fiends flooded the floor of the Javits Center. Among them included some of the world’s beloved YouTube sneaker content creators, like SneakerheadInTheBay, Paul Cantu, MrFoamerSimpson, HesKicks, FowlerCustoms, to name a few. Some of these YouTube personalities faced off in the Sneaker Con Hoops Classic basketball game on Day Two.
Check out just a sample of the kicks we spotted on the floor in the on-foot recap of Day One of Sneaker Con NYC below.
