“Sneakers represent our desire for self-expression and identity; we are using art as the conduit to unify these emotions to a diverse audience.”

— Steve Harris, CEO & Co-founder

Sneakers have been a lightning rod for empowerment and expression over the past century, reaching across generations, backgrounds and borders. This phenomenon that merges culture, creativity and commerce will take center stage at Sneakertopia. As a celebration of sneaker culture, Sneakertopia brings together diverse audiences and creates community to inspire self-expression and individuality.
