Get yourselves down to 

Laces Out! Sneaker Festival
Saturday 4th October, 2014
12pm – 6pm
Camp and Furnace, Liverpool
£3 adv tickets available at

Sneakers, trainers, trainees, trabs, kicks, webs, wheels - whatever you want to call them, they have never been in bigger demand than they are now. Sportswear can be seen on the catwalk and special commission collaborations between the biggest brands and celebrity designers can be seen all over the place, from Kanye West and Adidas to Asics and Ronnie Fieg. Such limited releases are what drives the community of dedicated ‘sneaker-heads’ from Brooklyn to Brixton and everywhere in between.

Now, a festival dedicated to these enthusiasts or sneaker-heads is coming to Liverpool as the city gets its very own sneaker festival Laces Out! this October (Saturday 4th) where loads of hard-to-find sneakers are up for grabs. Whether you’ve been on the hunt for Jordans, Air Maxes or Adidas or are just craving something new, you can head down to the Baltic Triangle where Camp and Furnace hosts 30+ stalls with 1000s of different trainers for sale and swap, plus an all day bar, a barber specialist in the form of Cutthroat Pete, a tattoo artist Ry Harris, and live music with beats supplied by DJ, The Mighty Mojo.

The popularity of these events in London is such that they are notorious for their large queues, with thousands of people eager to get in the mix amongst the rows of footwear. Laces Out! promises to be a haven for trainer addicts, drawing in the best of the best when it comes to traders of the laced collectibles. You can also have your sneakers customised by onsite experts. And if trainers aren’t your thing there will also be streetwear by the likes of Trapped Rats, Sneaker art, and street food available.

Tickets available at or from Ran, Lost Art, Weavers Door, 3B Records and Camp and Furnace.
