Calling all sneakerheads! It’s time to put on your best pair and lace them up. Sneaker Con, aka the Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth, is coming to Osaka, Japan, in November. This is the first Japanese Sneaker Con event ever and it’s sure to be full of sole.

The event, presented by MGM Resorts Japan, will have plenty of showstopping experiences and talk corners from some of the most famous names and brands. Get pumped and be prepared for an energetic and high-action weekend at INTEX Osaka. It’s going to be two days of buying, selling, and trading your favorite and most sought after sneakers and streetwear. This is the place to be to meet and greet fellow sneakerheads and influencers.

Keep your eyes on the event stage for some great discussions and entertainment, like dance performers, the Jabbawockeez, and turntable master, DJ Erika Hamilton, and others. Admission is free for children 6 and under, while others can choose to buy a one-day pass for 3,000 yen--or buy a two-day pass for 5,000 yen and save some cash.

Since its conception in 2009 by New York-based sneaker enthusiasts, Sneaker Con has held over 100 events in 30 cities around the world. They’ve cultivated a community online and offline of devoted sneaker fans who all want nothing more to share their passion for footwear fashion. Be one of the lucky people in Japan and get yourself to this first-ever convention in Japan. You’re sure to walk away with some new shoes that make you feel like a new person.
