The first exhibition of the sneaker industry Sneaker.Show: how it was

On June 24-25, Sokolniki hosted the first sneaker exhibition Sneaker.Show! For the whole two days, guests looked through and purchased exclusive items among hundreds of popular sneakers and novelties of renowned companies.

Well-known customizers Artur Bochkov and Tema Mayer brought their works to the exhibition. The latter demonstrated how to customize sneakers.

Open Space Zone with Dmitry Yegorov as an MC was intended for communication with bloggers, customizers, sneaker photographers and designers. Maggi, Artur Bochkov, Gena Kakusha, Tema Mayer, Aleksey Barkhan, and Yefim Glazkov were invited as guests.

Among the main activities of Sneaker.Show were Breakdance Battle 2×2 and KING OF THE CIRCLE BATTLE. Winners of the Breakdance Battle were Arsen Arakelyan and Abdul Anasov. They received 20,000 rubles as a prize!
