Cologne: Exciting, not small at all, a best case to us.

Germany often gets reduced to Berlin. But we ain’t playing that game! It’s the exciting city of Cologne that we have established as our home base in Germany. You ask why? The city at the river Rhine is much bigger than people tend to believe (the only thing that might be small about Cologne, is the size of their local beers, if at all!), its inhabitants are known for their hospitality and the local sneaker scene is nuts, to say the least.
This is why Cologne has proven to be a best case to us. And this is also why we are excited to be returning to Cologne once again. It’ll be a fresh Sneakerness you’ll encounter with a lot of international brands, exceptional sneaker stores, and some of the hottest private sellers and collectors from all over Europe. Alaaf!
