Naturally, some of Vancouver’s largest sneaker and streetwear retailers will be at the event as well, including names like Bred, Heatvault, #NFS, Stay Fresh, Dipt, and Hotbox.

“This time, we want to bring in more interaction and focus on the community aspect of being a sneakerhead,” says Jaycy Jaminal, one of HypeCity’s organizers.

The day will also feature an all-day Super Smash Brothers tournament as well as several other interactive activities that are still in the works.

The organizers also put heavy emphasis on securing a larger space for the event.

The extra space will give way for a trading pit, allowing anyone attending to bring pieces from their personal collection and put them up for display. This also means that there’s plenty of buying, selling, and swapping to be done.
