Sneakerness Cologne 2011 | Event Recap

By - May 27th, 2011

They might not share the same language, but the similar interests and an almost obsessive qualities for sneakers certainly clear all barriers. Organizers saw it first hand earlier this week at Sneakerness Cologne 2011, the first convention/swap-meet to take place in the Germany city of Cologne. The turn out of attendants was beyond anyone’s expectation as hundreds lined up to enter. Once in, the rotunda on the first floor served as the “marketplace” with treasure trove of deadstocks, hard to find, and unique footwear. Just beyond decorated columns, manufacturers set up special rooms to greet visitor with even more sneakers as well as additional incentives like customization and discounted purchases. With Sneakerness Cologne already a fragment of the past, organizers are preparing for the next Sneakerness at the Swiss city of Zurich on June 18th. via:
