Sneakerheads, unite.

SneakerLAH began its stride in 2015 as a small passion project between a bunch of friends that was well embraced by the sneaker scene with open arms. With an attendance of about 17,000 event-goers for that year (2015), and 22,000 the following year, #SneakerLAH2017 will be held in the heart of Kuala Lumpur at the KL Convention Centre on the 7th & 8th October. At 28,000 sqf of venue space, the guys behind #SneakerLAH2017 are all set to make this year the biggest one yet.

There will be a host of activities that cover various aspects of sneaker culture, streetwear/fashion, lifestyle, music and more at this year’s SneakerLAH – including an extensive display of over 350 pairs of limited edition sneakers and an indoor mini ramp for skate enthusiasts to enjoy. Attendees will also discover upcoming releases from international brands like Vans, Reebok, and Rastaclat, all of which and more will have a presence at SneakerLAH. With more than 50 sneaker-related vendors, attendees can buy, sell & trade the hottest sneakers on the market right now at the SneakerLAH marketplace, which is one of the biggest draws of the event. There will also be performances by KL’s hottest artists like Airliftz, Zamaera, DJs Arabyrd, JHin and more.
