Event Recap: Sneaker Exchange Rolls into Johannesburg

Event Recap: Sneaker Exchange Rolls into Johannesburg

The Sneaker Exchange jamboree finally rolled into Rosebank, South Africa, and the local community really came through, turning up in droves for one of the biggest and best events of the year.

The Zone Rosebank provided the backdrop, with most of the 10,000 patrons rolling in via gautrain and taxi – heat on their heat, of course. As always, Shesha and Redbull joined the Hunting For Kicks crew as part of the festivities.

Air Force 1 styles were the order of the day, to be expected considering the Johannesburg’s love for the Air Force 1. Hype drops such as the recent G-Dragon and Travis Scott Air Force 1s were also frequently spotted at the vendor stands, while Sole Knowledge delivered one of highlights: a ginormous Reebok retrospective – one of the favourites among the local crowd.

Last but not least, local retailer Shesha threw a sample sale featuring The Mitchell & Ness Chicago Bulls / Michael Jordan Limited Edition Jerseys. Naturally, the queue stretched right around the venue.

Special thanks to everyone to popped by the Shesha stall for a chat.
