From the ground up

This weekend, the European sneaker community ventured out to Zurich, Switzerland to attend the latest edition of Sneakerness. By now among the biggest events for selling and trading sneakers in Europe, this year’s iteration was the most attended and successful to date. As a testament to its success, the event originates in Zurich but now takes place in Cologne, Warsaw, Vienna and Amsterdam. Alongside the booths of Europe’s most prominent collectors, all of your favorite sneaker brands were in attendance, too, in some cases previewing what they have in store for the months ahead.

Without a doubt, as a sneakerhead, all of your dreams became true this weekend. No matter what brand or silhouette you may be into, the hottest releases from the past two decades were all there. The two-day event was attended by almost 5,000 sneaker fans that came from Switzerland and all over Europe.

Make sure to check out the Sneakerness website to stay up to date for upcoming events in other cities.
