Sneakerheads Descend on D.C. Armory for "Sneaker Con 2015"

From our friends at Events DC...

On April 18th, Over 2,000 People Will Be Buying, Selling and Trading Some of the Most Exclusive Sneakers in the Market at the World’s Largest Sneaker Show

The world’s biggest sneaker show is making its way back to the DC, Maryland, Virginia area on Saturday, April 18, 2015 for another massive gathering of sneakers and sneakerheads. The D.C. Armory will host over 2,000 of the top vendors showcasing the most sought after sneakers and gear in the market.

Sneaker Con is a force of nature! We are thrilled to host the premier sneaker event in the world in the nation’s capital,” stated Erik Moses, senior vice president and managing director, Events DC Sports and Entertainment Division.

All attendees will be able to buy, sell, trade, and experience the Ace of Customs, Sneaker Con Authenticated, and the Sneaker Con Trading Pit throughout the day. Tickets are $25 and can be secured in advance by visiting and will be available at the door. This event has historically sold out, so the public is advised to purchase tickets early as to not miss out on the largest selection of kicks available under one roof.

“We can’t wait to invade the nation’s capital by bringing together vendors with the hottest gear and collectors from across the DMV (change as you see fit),” says event organizer, Alan Vinogradov. The D.C. Armory (2001 E. Capitol Street SE, Washington, DC) is conveniently located next to the Stadium-Armory metro stop off the blue/orange lines and has ample parking space to accommodate all attendees. So mark it off on your calendar and visit for more information.
