Sneakers are big business. The people who love those sneakers are part of what’s become a global phenomenon and so it’s not surprising then that in celebration of this massive sneaker culture there’d be an event dedicated solely to it. This month, the biggest sneaker event of them all, Sneakerness, a European convention series for the appreciation of all things kicks, is making its way to South Africa for the first time!

Taking place on Saturday 11 November, Sneakerness at The Fox Junction in Johannesburg, Sneakerness is unlike any event Joburg has ever seen. Already an event with a massive international following this event showcases all there is to offer in footwear and convention goers can expect top international brands, limited edition merchandise, independent stores, buyers, private sellers and traders all converging to experience the best of what’s on offer in the world of sneakers.

For those who want to know more about keeping their sneakers in the best shape, don’t forget to pop over to the Crep Protect stand for some top tips. Crep will be showcasing its products with its free sneaker cleaning services and offering sneaker lovers all the advice they need to keep their kicks looking great.

But it’s not all about sneakers. The event will also offer entertainment in the form of graffiti, street art, and much more as well as a delicious food and drinks to nibble on while you shop up a storm.
