On the hunt for the perfect pair of sneakers? Sneakerness, Europe’s largest travelling sneaker event, brings together true shoe fanatics from across the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and many other countries to share their passion. More than merely a marketplace for sporty shoes, Sneakerness features a blend of the world’s top brands and stores, as well as private sellers and collectors.

A two-day event for all sneakerheads

Taking place in Rotterdam, Sneakerness offers visitors the chance to discover exclusive sneaker prototypes, study vintage sports shoe designs and buy rare and limited edition styles. Leading brands, such as Puma and Nike present their upcoming collections, special editions and more, offering insights into the newest shoe trends.

Local private sellers and collectors invite you to come and browse their collections, which include one-off items, unique custom sneakers and more, making this the convention to find your dream pair.

Sneakerness highlights

And that's not all! Eminent musicians, artists and fashion experts will be there for your eyes, ears and soul to enjoy, ensuring you get the full sneaker experience throughout the weekend. Basketball entertainment will let you test out your new kicks on the court and play against the pros providing all festival-goers with plenty of fun, while the stands offering food and drink allow you to keep your energy levels up for all the sneaker-hunting!

Tattoo artists and nail bars are also present for those looking to get a lasting symbol of their love for sneakers. Meanwhile, the kids' corner offers fun activities for the youngest attendees, so think of Sneakerness as a day out for the entire family.

If you need to make space in your closet for all your hot new sneakers, why not bring along the sneakers you no longer wear and donate them to Sneakers Paradise for people in need in Africa.
