Chicago came out in force for its first ever http://freshnessmag.com/2012/04/30/sneaker-con-chicago-may-19th-2012/” target=”_blank”>Sneaker Con last Saturday, making the event a rousing success for all involved. Over 40 vendors were in attendance, as well as event sponsors like http://adidas.com/originals/com/” target=”_blank”>adidas Originals, http://leaders1354.com/” target=”_blank”>Leaders 1354 and http://neweracap.com/” target=”_blank”>New Era Chicago, all of whom displayed their latest goods to the packed house. Rare sneakers were bought, sold and traded, and in light of the venue it was no surprise that Air Jordans made a strong showing among the valuable kicks trading hands. You can bet there will be a return engagement in the Windy City scheduled for the fall, but in the meantime sneakerheads on the East Coast can look forward to http://sneakercon.com/” target=”_blank”>Sneaker Con coming to New York on June 30th.
