Sneaker platform Sneakerness will take place for the second time in Cologne, this time even on two days. This upcoming weekend, Sneakerness will open its doors at the Cologne Rhein Forum to all sneaker fans, artists, as well as sneaker- and lifestyle brands again. Since 2008, the Swiss-based platform Sneakerness has held a number of conventions in Vienna and Zurich, followed this year by Amsterdam and for the second time Cologne.

Like last year, Sneakerness will not only provide an international platform for retailers and trade, but will host an event with concerts, Live Customizing and also a street art exhibition focussing on subjects, such as ‘Vintage Sneaker Notifications’, ‘sustainable sneaker’, ‘The history of Skateshoes’, as well as panel discussions about the future of the sneaker.

Sneakerness Cologne will be open Saturday (May 21) from 11am-7pm and Sunday (May 22) from 11am-5pm. The admission fee is €5 for one day and €7 for two days. Upcoming events in 2011 are Sneakerness Zurich on June 18 and an edition in Amsterdam on August 27.
