All the sneaker heads in Vancouver wait every year, save up every dollar, shine their hottest heats for this one day.
Vancouver Sneakerhead Group's Sole Xchange. This year, on May 21st, the fourth annual (as of this writing) event took place at St. Patricks Catholic Church in Vancouver, BC. With dozens of vendors, hundreds of attendees, an enthusiastic group of organizers, a DJ, and impatient parents and significant others attending the always note worthy event, Sneakerphiles was given generous backstage access to capture and document all they had to offer.
There were tables with fairly priced General Releases, ultra exclusive limited editions sharing the value of a respectable vehicle, and even clothing and accessories. If you were ever seeking out your grails, this is the event to try your luck. Chances are, you will find them. It's the equivalent of all the "For Sale" posts in your local social media sneaker group all gathered to buy, sell, and trade in one location. Just make sure to come cash prepared. Vendors do not have a limit, or guideline to what they price their merch for, so you will see the same sneakers from different vendors for substantially different asking prices.
Sneakerphiles was fortunate enough to be granted an opportunity to document the entire event from start to finish. In the video, you will see the absolutely overwhelming turn out, the amount of variety of sneakers and accessories available, and the entertaining festivities, which included live raffles, music, and a 3 point contest.
