Sneakerness, a sneakers festival this weekend in Paris

Nike Basket at the Sneakerness event in Paris

Sneaker-addicts are on the starting-blocks! Normal, Sneakerness, the big event dedicated to the tarmac star, is back in Parison the 7th and 8th of September for a highly awaited 6th edition.

The top dealers for trainers are on deck

The exhibition of different brands of basket at Sneakerness in Paris

Created 11 years ago in Switzerland, the Sneakerness convention gathers the most important players in the field: must brands, specialized flagships, resellers, collectors or sneakerheads, as they say in the lingo—they are all expected at the Paris Event Center of la Villette. An incredible playing area of 3,000 m² with the sneaker as star.

In other words, this is a golden occasion to get your hands on the latest novelties (Nike, Adidas, Reebok…), but also super rare vintage pieces, ultra limited editions, prototypes or samples to be found nowhere else. The hunting season is open.

Pimp my sneakers

Bring your old trainers, the American label Crep Protect will ensure the cleaning of your precious footwear, polished as though they were new. Cool also, the customisation workshops with a team of pros.

A street culture bath

More than a fad, sneakers mania is also a state of mind mingled with street culture. This is the reason why many animations and activities are on the programme: encounters, Havana Club cocktails bar, personalisable Swatch watches, Lego installation and spaces for the kids. Ready, set, go!

Sneakerness, on the 7th & 8th of September 2019 at the Paris Event Centre, Porte de la Villette. Presale starting at 10 €. Information and tickets on

Also check out the Sneakersnstuffboutique and the running concept-store.
