Rotterdam: Immense, ever new, a must-see to us.
Think great architecture, an immense harbor, a wild (street) art scene, amazing places for music, plus an innovative sneaker community, and you get the second largest city of the Netherlands: Rotterdam. The city’s cultural richness is minted by its dramatic history: During World War II Rotterdam got bombarded, but its diverse inhabitants have been reconstructing and reshaping the city in many ways ever since.
Thus, Rotterdam is a fascinating must-see to us – and we are thrilled to bring our convention to the Dutch city’s cultural landscape. Be prepared to discover international brands, extraordinary sneaker stores, and some of the most exquisite private sellers and collectors from all over the place at this year’s Sneakerness Rotterdam.
