Verge travelled to Stratford in east London to join eL at SNOBCON Season 2.
As promised this event rocked all the latest in limited sneakers and streetwear.
On arrival, we were welcomed by the guys from 24HOUR CLUB in their mobile ‘Airstream trailer’ store.
The event was a hive of activity with live DJs playing hip-hop, trap, and neo-soul, basketball being played by all on the in-event court, and, live workshops with MadeBlack, Fifi Anicah and Emilio Aka KingEmZ, to name a few.
Not forgetting the abundant number of stands selling the hottest sneakers and streetwear on the market!
I was like a kid in a candy store, getting to see and hold all the ‘must haves’ for the discerning sneakerhead.
Here are some of the stores we met at the event:
My favourite kicks at the event has to be the AIR MAX 1/97 SW, designed by Sean Wotherspoon, one of the world’s foremost collectors of vintage shoes and apparel. He created these winning sneakers for the 2017’s Vote Forward competition. He drew his inspiration from his love for 80’s culture and combined his two favourite pairs of sneakers, the AIR MAX 1 and the AIR MAX 97.
We look forward to Season 3 and what it has to offer.
