Here’s what to look forward to at Joburg’s SNEAKERNESS


Here’s what to look forward to at Joburg’s SNEAKERNESS

Presented by Crep Protect, Sneakerness will be taking place for the first time in Joburg this Saturday, 11 November 2017 at The Fox Junction – Newtown (14 Alexander St, Ferreiras Dorp, Johannesburg).

Ahead of the event, we have rounded up a few exciting things to look forward to at the Sneakerness event:


– Sneakerness x Puma Tsugi Blaze ‘Race Club’

This Puma Tsugi Blaze ‘Race Club’ takes inspiration from the 90s Formula One racing. Features Black across the base while accents of Bright Red are also used. Additional elements include a checkerboard pattern on the back heel pull tabs. Completing the design are yellow accents on the Sneakerness and Puma branding, White on the midsole while Gum covers the outsole.

RELEASING AT: Sneakerness – Joburg @ The Fox Junction – Newtown.


– Sneakerness x ASICS Gel Lyte V Passport

This GEL-LYTE V silhouette takes inspiration from the gold and burgundy hues of European passports.

The upper is constructed from a combination of premium materials, including smooth suede, hairy suede, and perforated suede, which all sit atop a gum outsole. It is the perfect combination of quality and performance that will appeal to a myriad of different collectors. Each pair comes with two lace options, burgundy, and off-white, that offer some versatility to everyone wearing the creation.

– Sneakerness Cologne x KangaRoos Green Bridges

Sneakerness took inspiration from the seven different bridges that cross the Rhine river and connect both sides of Cologne.

The shoe’s perforated calfskin leather upper was hit with a very distinctive colorway derived from the bridges’ typical paint: “Kölner Brückengrün”, a greenish tone that was developed in 1929 upon request of Cologne’s then-mayor Konrad Adenauer (who would later become Germany’s first chancellor).

Roman numeral heel embossings represent the seven bridges of Cologne on this runner, which is based on the Ultimate Leather model. Sneakerness also asked ROOS to remodel the 3M tongue, bring in the signature pocket and make it longer for a crooked look. A white midsole and gum outsole always look dope, so that’s why the two collab partners chose to ground their creative upper with a classic bottom section.
