Cebu’s first-ever Sneaker-Con!

Posted by CG Store on

QUICKSTRIKE, the first-ever Sneaker-Con in Cebu will be held on January 12, 2019 in Common Ground, The Gallery, Juan Luna Ave., Mabolo, Cebu City.

Sneakers, as what shoes primarily designed for sports, exercise and casual use are called, has been increasing its significance over the past decades. Old brands and newer ones are persistently competing in the market, selling and promoting both their high and regular-priced products.



In the country, the formation of communities of sneaker enthusiasts, composed of collectors, buyers, sellers, and traders, from different regions are noticeably increasing. And popular designs of sneakers that were usually only ordered by pairs overseas are now made more available due to such increase. Along with these sneakers fad, is the rise of popularity of merchandises like shirts, jackets, pants and accessories that completes what is now known as “streetwear”. What were previously considered as solely made for comfort are now made for fashion, and luxury.

With this, events such as expo’s and conventions for these communities are being organized to gather people of different stature that share the same passion for streetwear. However, only this time that the Queen City of the South will have its own Sneaker-Con, spearheaded by few of the active resellers in the local streetwear scene. Available in this event, aside from boost and fun, will be items from famous brands such as Bape, Supreme, Yeezy, Adidas, Jordan, Nike and many more. Apparently, its objective will not be limited to selling, buying, and trading sneakers and other streetwear products but more importantly to establish a stronger personal connection and camaraderie between people of the same passion and interest as well as invite and entice curious ones into the pack.

So whether you have been a long-time sneakerhead or streetwear enthusiast or just plainly wanting to check out some cool stuff, head on to this event!
