Sneakerness calls on everyone to donate sneakers this weekend
Fashion lovers and sneakerheads can be found this weekend in Rotterdam at Sneakerness. This time not only the most exclusive sneakers and streetwear outfits can be found there; a special ‘donation tree’ is being built from sneakers. Everyone is invited to hand in their old (or new) pair at the event so that Sneaker Paradise can hand it out personally in different areas of Africa. Tickets are available here.
The guys behind Sneaker Paradise have been busy for ten years. Once a year, they drive to Africa themselves, to provide shoes for people who need it most – even in small mountain villages. Collected money is used to buy food packages and toys for the little ones. Costs that they incur for transport, accommodation, and accommodation are fully paid by themselves. There are many charities, but in my view, this is as it should be. So personal and unpaid, I find that very special. ”
REC.Festival is taking place this week in Rotterdam with a multi-day music program – the perfect opportunity for a great collaboration. This means that there will be an official Sneakerness afterparty on Saturday at REC.Festival, with no one less than Sevn Alias, Kevin and CHO in Annabel. Anyone with a Sneakerness ticket can enter for free. Conversely, REC. visitors can have their sneakers cleaned for free at Sneakerness.
