Sneakerness Rotterdam

Sneakerness Rotterdam is back at the Van Nelle Factory

Launched 11 years ago in Switzerland by a group of sneaker enthusiasts, Sneakerness brings together shoe fanatics who celebrate their passion. It has visited several European cities, with each event uniting a diverse mix of people. In 2017 the Van Nelle Factory hosted the first Sneakerness Rotterdam.

The next years it took place in the Onderzeebootloods. But this November 27 and 28 the monumental factory is once again the place to be when it comes to fashion, art, and of course the newest and most exclusive sneakers.  Be prepared to discover international brands, extraordinary sneaker stores, and some of the most exquisite private sellers and collectors from all over the place. 

The best customizers in Europe will perform live customizations and restorations, the best artists will create stunning graffiti on the spot!  DJ Turne will be pumpin’ some great tunes on both days. Furthermore, there are exhibitions, you can have your sneakers professionally cleaned and there are other services.

Once again a special activity is being added this year. Everyone is invited to hand in his or her (old) sneakers at the event. The sneakers are donated to the people in need in various countries in Africa. You’ll receive a raffle ticket for every pair you’ll bring in.

Kids love sneakers

Kids up to 12 years get free entrance. There will be a Kids Corner to keep them busy. So mom and dad can go on the hunt for that perfect pair.  Insanely good food, fresh coffee, cold beers and refreshing drinks will off course also be present.

You can get your tickets for Sneakerness Rotterdam here.
