On October 6-7, Cologne will once again play host to Sneakerness, Europe’s largest Sneaker Convention. Located at Barthonia Forum, the event targets brands, retailers and consumers and will provide a space for meetings and business. Sneaker news and rarities will be displayed and sold according to the event’s slogan: “Exhibit. Buy. Sell.”
 
Side events such as the new Lace Race contest finals as well as street art, music and an after party at Club Roxy will round out the program. Besides Cologne, the convention also takes place in Zurich, Vienna and Amsterdam.
