‘Sneaker Freak’ Convention Coming to Richmond

Sneaker Freak Convention Richmond

Calling all sneaker enthusiasts!

Vancouver’s premier sneaker convention—Sneaker Freak is back on Sunday, March 13th.

The convention is for sneaker collectors and enthusiasts to meet up and buy/sell or trade their footwear merchandise.

There will be a large selection of authentic sneakers, both vintage and newly released styles, at the event.

“I have been collecting sneakers for the last 20 years, and have been watching the industry change and grow in recent years. Sneaker collecting used to be a niche, and in the past few years there has been a boom in the hobby,” said Gem Baysan, founder of Sneaker Freak. “Sneaker Freak is a great opportunity for sneakerheads, both old and new, to socialize and network with each other. It’s been very exciting to bring the sneaker community together through this show.”
