Next month London’s Printworks will play host to Sneakerness, Europe’s largest sneaker convention.

Opening its doors for the very first time in the UK, Sneakerness is set to provide British sneakerheads with a rare chance to buy, sell and swap shoes and apparel with a slew of international brands, private collectors and indie retailers.

As well as the shopping, attendees will have the opportunity to experience music, food, drinks and a shoe cleaning service courtesy of the event’s presenting partner Crep Protect. And with representatives from Adidas HQ scouting the event for the future designers of tomorrow, the lucky innovators tapped will be awarded a trip to the iconic German headquarters.

Sneakerness takes place from July 7-8 at Printworks. For more information on the event and to grab yourself a ticket head over here.
