Take note sneakerheads – the promised land opens its doors this weekend at Sneaker Freak 2016.
The event was started by sneakerhead Gem Baysan as a place for the sneaker enthusiasts and collectors of Metro Vancouver to come together, buy, sell, trade, and talk shop with some of the city’s top vendors.
“I have been collecting sneakers for over 20 years, and have been doing sneaker shows since 2014,” Baysan said in a press release. “Sneaker Freak has proven to be a great event for the community, bringing together sneakerheads, both old and new, to socialize and network with each other.””
Now in its third year, the convention has relocated to the Sneaker Vault, a brand new consignment store owned by sneaker enthusiast Isaac Payne.
Early bird tickets are still available. For more information on Sneaker Freak 2016, visit the official website.
