Yesterday Foot Locker celebrated the official global launch of Sneakerpedia with an event in New York City, filled with sneaker lovers and sneaker collectors from around the world. Most notably, DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito, Mayor and of course also Bun B attended the festivities and participated in the launch by adding their own personal collections to Sneakerpedia. Clark Kent also DJed the event and Bun B did a live performance.
In case you do not know yet, Sneakerpedia is basically an online community of sneaker collectors and sneaker wearers. The site allows you to upload your own collection and view others, talk about sneakers, share sneakers and more. Check it out here.
We have to admit, the event was a bit of a flashback for us, bringing together folks from the early days of sneaker culture and streetwear.
Check out many more pictures from the launch after the jump.
