Experiencing sneakerhead culture at Sneaker Con SEA/Singapore 2023.
The world’s biggest sneaker show landed in Singapore on April 1!
Finally landed, as in, the event was originally scheduled for mid-2020 but was “postponed” because of, you know. Now, nearly three years after that announcement, the “Greatest Sneaker Show on Earth” finally hit our shores at long last. At no better timing too, IMO, with life 99 percent back to normal.
And oh wow, what a large and lively conference, one that’s not just for sneakerheads too. There’s a vast sneaker marketplace with vendors large and small; a trading pit too. Many booths also have special activities or games. There’s even a sizable skate park and a basketball half-court, and of course, a F&B zone with finger food and a Carlsberg Smooth Draught bar.
To share, I visited this famed sneaker conference out of curiosity and ended up staying for three hours, because there was so much to enjoy. I … didn’t buy or trade any sneakers, but I did purchase a tee, some collectibles, and a sneaker cleaning spray. As well as had a great time watching the basketball bros and skaters at their art.
I even won a UFO catcher prize with just one try! (Smirk) Seems like all those hours grinding Yakuza UFO Catcher Minigames have some worth after all.

By the way, the Carlsberg Smooth Draught is wonderfully refreshing and light. It’s mellower than your typical pilsner, with a lovely aromatic fragrance too. Simply perfect for, say, a movie night or a beach party. You must try it if you haven’t!
