Sneaker Exchange Cape Town

Sneakerheads from far and wide are invited to buy, sell or trade their favourite kicks at Africa’s leading sneaker bartering event!

Consider yourself a lover of kicks? Well then head on down to the Sneaker Exchange (SXC), happening on Saturday, 29 April 2017, at The Lookout in Granger Bay. This is one of Africa’s largest takkie trading events with the first installment kicking off right here in the Mother City before heading to Johannesburg and Durban.

Since SXC’s inaugural event in 2013, the brand has gone from strength to strength. Co-directors Zaid Osman (who’s also the founder of the movement) and Tebogo Mogola have even been commissioned to host sneaker exhibits and to promote a culture that is sometimes misunderstood, in other parts of Africa.

SXC spans fours years and welcomes almost 3,000 attendees per event in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The showcase is not only reserved for those who own a collection of Jordans or Adidas to sport their kicks, it serves as a platform for various sneaker traders to either sell, buy or barter their recently produced footwear to individuals who share the love for kicks. “The whole premise of the event is that it’s about sharing the love of a culture few people know about or understand,” says SXC founder, Zaid Osman, “I created this event so that I could share my passion for sneakers with others and so we welcome anyone and everyone to Sneaker Exchange.”

HOW TO BUY, SELL AND TRADE AT THE 2017 SNEAKER EXCHANGE CAPE TOWN

BUY: Attendees will be able to purchase sneakers from vendors and other people attending SXC who are proud members of the sneaker community. Look forward to some near-mint conditioned kicks, local/international apparel and some awesome footwear designs to stock-up on your collections.

SELL: You’ll also be afforded the opportunity to sell your kicks. You’d need to have your sneakers with you at all times during the event, or you could opt to hire a vendor table from which you can sell sneakers or clothing. It’s a great way for you to score a lot more from the Sneaker Exchange!

TRADE: Basically a concept of ‘I’ll take yours, you’ll take mine’. You will be able to barter with other sneaker lovers. You never know who’d like your kicks more than you do right now unless you compare at the Sneaker Exchange.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2017 SNEAKER EXCHANGE CAPE TOWN AT THE LOOKOUT

FOOD: Not only will there be goodies to buy for your body’s exterior, but you’ll also be able to buy delicious eats at the various food stalls set up at SXC.

SPECIAL GUESTS: Other than the awesome entertainment line-up, there’ll also be two special guests at the event. Amsterdam-based clothing label, Daily Paper, and multi-talented artist and sneaker customiser, Dada Khanyisa, will be in attendance.

BRAND ACTIVATIONS: There’ll be some international brand activations to showcase some of our favourite international sneaker brands.

LIVE SNEAKER CUSTOMISATION: You’ll be bearing witness to sneaker customiser, Dada Khanyisa creating miniature-Asics sneakers on site, now that’s wassup!

AND MORE: There’ll also be a barber and tattoo artist on site to give you a taste of all elements of sneaker culture.

Now we all know a sneaker exchange aint a sneaker exchange without some of the coolest people in the South African hip-hop scene making an appearance. Check out the fresh line-up below to make sure you don’t miss out.
