Sneakerness 2017 | Sneaker Convention in Netherlands


A little over two weeks ago, Sneakerness was held in Van Nelle Fabriek at Rotterdam, Netherlands on 25th and 26th of November. We were fortunate enough to participate the event and to see what Netherlands’ sneaker culture was all about. Needless to say, Netherlands delivered well.

Sneakerness 2017 didn’t fail to serve to its target market. The convention had a lot to offer in terms of activities. The event consisted of dedicated booths from well-known brands but Sneakerness had space to cater to independent merchants as well. The main section of the event consisted of tables filled with latest releases mixed with timeless classics of OG silhouettes dating back several decades.

The event had a lot to offer and pretty much everything somehow correlated to the actual context – an art section was installed which paid homage especially to Nike and a tattoo corner which had sneaker-themed stamps up for a bargain.
