Sneakerness brings together what belongs together
Sneakerness is a get-together for a diverse group of people from different communities—but they all share the same passion. Out of this very passion Sneakerness was born: Friends gathering to mount a platform for those that can’t get enough of sneakers and the culture that comes with them. A culture as broad and diverse as it gets: It connects private sellers and brands, athletes and artists, musicians and designers, dancers and DJs, chefs and entertainers. Living in the networked age we realize that these people and their talents are linked—and all it takes to make something bigger out of their individual scenes is a chance to bring all of them together. This is the vision we have believed in from day one—and we still do today.
Kicks you didn’t expect to actually exist
Sneakerness offers tables to private collectors and individual sellers who have things to offer that they themselves would look for. Here’s your chance to find the rarity you’ve been chasing down for ages, to finally add the sneaker that was out of stock everywhere else to your collection. Together with the biggest sneakerheads of your city we guarantee, that what you find stacked on those tables is the real deal and at times fresh out the box. Discuss and talk shop, make a good bargain if you’re lucky enough, check out the craziest customizations or just feel your jaw drop when you see the prices for some of the treasures that people brought along to show off.

Arts, Sports & Culture
Much more than just a shoe
Today, it’s a statement to wear a particular pair of sneakers, and even more so if they are prominently stored on eye level on your shelf. Beyond all practical aspects, sneakers have become cult through their designs, shapes and materials. Ever since Run DMC stepped on stage in their Adidas they have shaped youth culture globally. Sneakerness is committed to this artistic tradition and not only brings together all sorts of sneakerheads, but also the artists, musicians and designers who are inspired by this culture. Add sports events like the street soccer tournament and you get the a unique, holistic Sneakerness-experience that is for everybody.
Sneakerness is about you!
Our inspiration stems from people like you—people with a passion for sneakers ever since their feet stuck in a pair. Without all the sneakerheads from around the globe, there wouldn’t be a need to bring them together. We’re looking forward to welcoming you at one of our events in a city nearby. No need to dress to impress—but make sure to put on a fancy pair. Welcome to Sneakerness.
