Sneaker Con has become one of the world’s most celebrated footwear events. Since 2009, the in-person extravaganza has appeared across 25 cities and 14 countries, hosting over 1,000,000 attendees. Due to the current pandemic however, it was questioned whether the beloved event would be taking place. Thankfully, North American Live Streaming shopping platform NTWRK will be hosting the first ever virtual Sneaker Con.
This year, the multi-media experience will be hosted by comedian Hasan Minhaj and skate icon Nick Diamond. Joining the two, NBA Kicks on Court King PJ Tucker, rapper Lil Yachty and others provide the perfect guest line-up. Giveaways, exclusive product offerings, musical performances, and insight-driven discussion will all be taking place.
The line-up will include several exciting events. Perhaps the most notable, NTWRK is giving away Virgil’s entire “THE TEN” collection through an exclusive draw. Other occurrences include selling hyped sneakers for retail price, Psychorome’s detailing his sneaker artistry process, the release of Dexter the Creator’s custom “Error Force 1,” a Microsoft Surface Book 3 illustration session, and more!
NTWRK’s virtual Sneaker Con will be taking place through June 26 & 27, so be sure to mark those dates on your calendar.
“I remember waiting in line for the Bred 11s my freshman year of high school. A brawl broke out at Florin Mall in Sacramento. I ran. That’s why I’m thrilled to connect with other collectors and passionate fans at this virtual festival.”Hasan Minhaj
“I have been collecting sneakers for many years, so when Sneaker Con asked me to co-host this festival, I was excited to be a part, and to help celebrate the global passion for sneakers and everything that goes along with our culture. Sneaker Con is the industry leader in the space and I trust NTWRK as a partner.”Nick Diamond
